LDS Congregation Assists with Interfaith Initiative to Assist the Formerly Homeless
Orlando Sentinel Article Link
"We're providing a two-month supply of basically everything a person needs to live — food, hygiene items, cleaning supplies," said Orlando attorney Rulon Munns, a high-ranking elder for the Mormon church and a member of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness. "A lot of what we do flies under the radar, but we wanted to show we don't just help our own; we also help our community."
I understand his sentiment. Looks like a pretty significant effort, and for a worthy cause.
About This Website
My name is Marc, I live in California, and I've been a Mormon for over 25 years. Even though I know a lot about the Mormon religion, I still consider myself a beginner student of Jesus Christ and his teachings. On this website I write about any spiritual or Mormon church-related topic that catches my interest. Latest Quote
Celebrating Our Differences
"Obviously the Lord has created us with different personalities, as well as differing degrees of energy, interest, health, talent, and opportunity. So long as we are committed to righteousness and living a life of faithful devotion, we should celebrate these divine differences, knowing they are a gift from God. We must not feel so frightened, so threatened and insecure; we must not need to find exact replicas of ourselves in order to feel validated as women of worth. There are many things over which we can be divided, but one thing is needful for our unity—the empathy and compassion of the living Son of God."
--Patricia T. Holland, "One Thing Needful," October 1987

2 Nephi 1:3: And he also spake unto them concerning the land of promise,
which they had obtained--how merciful the Lord had been in
warning us that we should flee out of the land of Jerusalem.
