Reflections on Discovering Joy Through Generosity
When I was asked to reflect on how I had discovered joy through giving generously of time, talent and treasure to MPC, I immediately thought of the wonderful honor I had been given to become a deacon of the church.
This has been a year of great loss for me, and I feel that church leaders recognized that losing my role as a caregiver for dad left a huge hole in my heart.
My parents instilled in me that appreciating what I have and giving to others is an important part of life. I strive to emulate their love of God, family, community and country. I welcome the opportunity to support not only the members of my cluster, but all members who may be in need.
I pray that through God’s guidance and love I will have the strength and devotion to fulfill my promise of service to MPC.
I have often said that when I walk through the doors of the sanctuary I always get the feeling of coming home.
Thank you. Ann Junod
