The Word: July 2016

Galatians 5:13-14 – You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Serve One Another in Love
God calls us to be free so we can best love our neighbor. God calls us to be free; free of addictions, free of pain, free of debt. Blessedly, Meeting Ground and the Cecil County Men’s Shelter are now both fully free of debt. Because of the generosity of two individuals who remembered Meeting Ground in their wills, both organizations paid off all remaining debt-the mortgage at the Mary Randall Center and the mortgage at Cecil County Men’s Shelter.
We are blessed that that the funds were so wisely used to serve one another humbly in love and serve as a model to our guests and residents who are seeking to gain independence by focusing on debt reduction and credit restoration as they  move forward on the Path to Home.

Now that Meeting Ground and Cecil County Men’s Shelter are free from debt, we can continue with your on-going support to follow Jesus’ command to serve one another humbly in love and love our neighbors especially those who feel most unloved.

Retirement of the mortgages coincides with the completion of the repairs after the fire at the Mary Randall Center and the start of renovations at the Cecil County Men’s Shelter.
Thus, we are experiencing blessing upon blessing.
