“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:39 NRSV)
 This commandment appears first in the Old Testament book of Leviticus and then is repeated several times by Jesus, who called it one of the two great com-mandments. As we all know, it is easy to state but hard to obey. Yet I often see you following this commandment! Without going into specifics, I want to tell you that several persons (some from outside our church family) recently have told me how they were moved by your acts of compassion and love. Maybe you wrote a note of encouragement, which, although it seemed simple to you, came at just the right time. Maybe you cooked a meal, or shared your time by visiting. Even a phone call or an e-mail can be a vehicle for expressing our care for one another. Our deacons lead the way in these matters, and I am proud of the care they provide. And oth-ers in our congregation are just as active in this ministry of compassion. Time is extremely valuable. In a sense, it is all that we have. When we spend on someone else time that we would otherwise have used in addressing our own concerns, we are loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. This is a powerful Christian witness for anyone who is paying attention. And many are watching, whether we realize it or not. Thank you for being a loving congregation.
