Volunteer at St. Johns? “God, if only…..”

By Bill Wiley
Does something break your heart, something that might be drawing you in to help?  But then you have a “God, if only” conversation with Him.  I did.  More than once!
The Feed My Sheep Ministry had me on the fence for YEARS!  Every year, I would hear Tony Hoffman or Dan Detamore explain our ministry to the homeless in Camden, preparing and serving lunch for up to 200 people every Sunday. Then my “God, if only” conversation would start like this….”But God, in the Fall/Winter, I might miss Eagles games on Sunday;  you know I have been a fan since I was 6 years old.” Finally, in 2017 I gave in and started to help with Feed My Sheep.  I am blessed every time I go!  And, because of TV scheduling, I never missed an Eagles game that year!
Philippians 2:3 - Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.
There are incredible opportunities to serve at St John's. I encourage you to jump right in, be a blessing. I guarantee you’ll be glad you did!
