Helping Others

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Helping others is helping yourself.

I have read in books and pamphlets about the psychosocial aspects of disasters and recovery from disasters that helping others is a powerful way to help yourself recover from the disaster. So, that's why you saw the survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing going to New York after 9/11, and why our sister congregation in New Orleans has asked us to help them with mission trips to SuperStorm Sandy sites.

Overweight and obesity are not disasters, you say? Well, in any disaster, there are those who are struggling with more than you got, and those who are struggling with less.

I hope I haven't taken the joy out all the wonderful ways Sparkpeople has set up for us to support each other. Rather, think about how important it is for us to support each other. Then forget about it, and catch up with your SparkFreinds.
