By small and larger acts of kindness we can spread a culture of care. An important part of the Australian and Pacific cultures is to look out for others. In this time of uncertainty, it is important that we are tuned in to the needs of people around us and provide support as needed. Some of you may have seen the story on the news last night where a person who was a double amputee rode a tricycle for a number of kilometres to complete grocery shopping for an elderly friend who was no longer able to do this for himself. Care with our actions and communication provides important safety for people. As Pacific families we can keep an eye out for each other and for our neighbours. We can check whether other families or the elderly and less mobile in our streets need assistance in anyway. We can be there for each other as individuals and families.
In the midst of uncertainty and change, God promises that He is there with us. We can rest and recharge in His love, grace and care. Recharged we can spread care through all of our interactions.
