Empathy

In this Update, GCI President Greg Williams talks about stepping outside of our own experiences to empathize with others, considering the needs of those around us, and the ways in which we can help them. He also offers a glimpse into 2021 with exciting news regarding our newly rescheduled Denominational Celebration.

  1. In my „other job” (I work full time for a secular social services organization) I face daily the gut wrenching challenges you mentioned. I could share veritable horror stories about the pain and loneliness of the elderly and sick as they try to cope with the additional burden caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Every shared smile and every kind word CAN make a difference. We may not have all the answers, but the Lord does. In Him we trust.

  2. Thank you Greg for this very strong message on thinking of others during this time, Sometimes we get caught up in us and what we are doing forgetting what others might be going thru. God bless.

  3. Thanks Greg. With all the involvements of today, this information was needed to raise awareness and prayerful concern for others around the world, while we connect and relate to our neighbor nearby.

  4. A very positive message. I listen to the daily news and rejoice in the fact that those essential front line healthcare professionals are putting their lives on the line to save as many lives as possible.

  5. Thanks Greg for reminding us to go and show others care because God cares for us all. 1 Peter 5:7

  6. Concerning these COVID-19 times, I think about Jesus’ wisdom, ” Do to others, as you would have them do to you”. A very, practical piece of advice for living (and it works !).
