Our next group of families will be arriving at Beth David on Sunday, August 25 for the week.
Our last week of hosting fell when many were away on the Iona retreat and other trips, and we were not able to fill any of the volunteer slots. As we are getting ready for the start of the new year at church and at school, perhaps we can come together to offer meals and hospitality to our neighbors who are in transition with housing.
Please check out this sign-up and see if you can cover some of the many spots available.
Opportunities to help include setting up the bedding before the families come, making a meal and eating with the families, staying overnight and seeing the families off early in the morning (6 am), or taking the beds down at the end of the week and doing the laundry at your own home.
You will find that the experience is about building relationship with our neighbors – our neighbors at Beth David and our neighbors who do not currently have housing. This is what we are called by Christ to do, not because we are more blessed or fortunate than any others, but because we are all children of God, called to be in relationship with one another.
