Family Reflection Video: Power of Love

Family Reflection Video: Power of Love

service  |  strength and hope  |  lent

If you’ve ever known someone who often feels down, we have a unique remedy they might want to try!

People who need us may be powerless in the eyes of the world, but they have the power of love. The path of love and service brings us close to Jesus. That is the real power we are called to, especially during this Lenten season.

The power of love you receive through service is healing. Talk with your family about how you are called to serve others, especially one another! Is there an opportunity where your entire family can serve together? Reflect on how serving others invites you to encounter the power of love.

My friends, “Find people in need. Then do something to help. Immerse yourself in the lives of others.” May God bless you and your family for the way you serve others.
