It’s November, the days are getting shorter and as much as we might try to ignore it, thoughts of Christmas start creeping up. At Cornerstone we promote “Christmas” projects, not projects that have will have an impact on Cornerstone but on people who we will never meet.
Operation Christmas Child will put gift boxes in the hands of children who may never have received a gift before. And there are many families at Cornerstone that Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without filling a box or many boxes for children in developing countries.
Our second project, Clean Water for Christmas, has raised funds to provide clean water for over a dozen villages in Africa through the years. This year our gifts will be matched dollar for dollar by another donor and used to cap fresh water springs in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
And no one at Cornerstone is poorer for having taken part in these projects, but lives have been changed and without hyperbole lives have been saved.
As a church family most of us have been blessed and I want to thank you for the blessings that you have and will pass on to folks who you will probably never meet, at least not on this side of eternity. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
