nursing homes comment (0)
June 26, 2014
When someone in our church is in the hospital the pastor, deacons and church members drive miles to give comfort to that person and their family. I don’t have a problem with that. That is what we should do. I would expect them to visit me.
What I do have a problem with is when our loved ones are in a nursing home we don’t drive across town to visit them. Even family members tend to forget their loved ones. I guess I just expect more from our church family.
A nursing home is just a home away from home. I have never known of a person who wants to live in one; but tomorrow any of us could be a resident. This is great missions work right [at] our front door and we just don’t realize it.
