“This morning as I was reading an article by a woman who is a police chaplain, she made the statement: ‘Jesus was a general practitioner when it came to love. The rest of us tend to specialize.’ She made that statement because she had been asked to come do a service at the prison and she didn’t want to – she avoided prisoners.
I am so thankful that at Love INC Newberg, I work with a group of people who are general practitioners when it comes to loving people. This also includes the ones who work on days that I don’t, and the teachers and mentors in the Relational Ministry program on Thursday nights. One mentor told me the other day that she still keeps in contact with and sees those she has mentored in the past but who have graduated out of the RM program.”
