A Wonderful LDS Christmas Message

Well hidden in pablum of the Dec 2016 issue (page 37) of the Ensign (an official publication of the LDS Church) is the following brief but important message:

By Bishop Gerald Causse, Presiding Bishop

[We should] always [be] prepared to reach out to the homeless and the destitute.  Regardless of whether we live in areas experiencing a great influx of refugees or to small, isolated communities, there are many way we can serve those who struggle to have the bare necessities of life.  We can:

  • contribute to the Church’s humanitarian fund;
  • work with others in our communities who provide loving service to those in need;
  • extend our friendship to those who have been displaced when they come to our communities; and
  • welcome strangers who visit our wards and branches.
