Recently, I was in a car accident and what struck me (days after the mishap) was how quickly my church family was there to check in on me and to help our family with our needs. We didn’t have to advertise it or ask for help; it was just there. I was so moved by how caring and generous the people in my community were to my family. I had more phone calls checking in on me than from my direct family, which is not a dig on my family; it’s just a sign of how invested the church community is.
There’s a saying that “people don’t care what you know, until they know that you care.”
