  • Do You Volunteer?

    I have done so for many years.

    I work at a charity and have been there for over 10 years. I must admit, I love the work. Admittedly, I don't use the computer there, but I assist members of staff.

    Over to you.

  • I preach the good news of God's kingdom. It dominates my life. My wife and I view our secular work as a means to support our ministry

    Will reap with a joyful shout." - Psalm 126

    • That's wonderful, Stillness. I am religious myself: although not to your level. Still, I was raised Roman Catholic and went to church every Sunday as a child. We had a wonderful priest at our school. He was a nice, caring man and very understanding.

      I don't go to church often these days - although I have been to a number of church weddings - but still believe in God, the angels and Jesus. Because only Jesus doesn't betray and never turns to stone. I could go on, but that is my penny's worth.

      Again, I am glad for your work, Stillness. Having people make the world a better place gets my vote.

        • Was out last night handing out sleeping bags to homeless people. The charity I work with have a campaign begging people to donate so people end up in a sleeping bag rather than a body bag.

          The temperature has really dropped here lately and unfortunately that means the death tole is going to rise.

          Last night we gave out 11 sleeping bags. So hopefully that impacts peoples lives.

          The same group are out every night now.

          • I think you're wonderful and generous, MrMr. What you do deserves credit. Definitely be proud of yourself. Handing out sleeping bags to the homeless is incredibly caring. You're right to do that and spend your time helping those in need. I do charity work myself and it is so rewarding.

            Be proud, MrMr.

            • I volunteer with hospice.

              It can be a little depressing but it's been a very rewarding experience.

                Thank you for volunteering. Family and friends have been in hospice. It is important to have someone who cares nearby at the end.

                Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

                • You are a credit to volunteering, atskitty2. It sounds difficult having to handle your work, but it must be rewarding, as you say.

                  It is wonderful so many people do volunteer. Again, it is very rewarding knowing you're making a difference. Because there are people who only work for money: but that isn't right. Volunteering means contributing without a paycheck and helps the world heal.

                  I am glad I started this thread.

                    That sounds like a really good idea, Anya Joe. Keeping track of the calories you're burning must work. To me, I wouldn't use such a device myself, but...
