Sweet Magnolia takes seriously the parable Jesus of Nazareth told about who will be included in the future kingdom of God. In the story, a king is separating his sheep from the goats. When the separation is made, the sheep wonder why they were chosen. Jesus replies that it is their acts of kindness to strangers that earned their place in the kingdom. “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
Each member is asked to Help Invite In Every Child to God’s Love This Christmas!
There’s nothing quite like Christmas to bring out the kid in everyone. Holiday cards, gift-giving and receiving, stuffed animals, and other toys, hoping for that perfect gift from someone special — the Christmas season is a special time of year.
But for millions of children all over the world who face hunger, lack of clean water, homelessness, and poverty on a daily basis, the holiday season isn't something to celebrate, especially for children suffering the economic, physical, and emotional impacts of COVID-19.
They don’t put up Christmas trees or decorations, sing carols, stay up late listening for sleigh bells, or wake up early to unwrap new Christmas presents of toys or gift cards. Feeling unloved and forgotten, these children may never know the true hope and joy that Christmas promises.
We believe that there are Angels watching over us. As such, we should watch over others.
Sign up today for the Angel Project, we make sure that every child in our program feels special on Christmas Day.
Many of our children are recommended by CASA and are a part of the Foster Care System. Your generosity to give back and bless others from the abundance the Lord has given you helps to make Christmas feel special for these children.
"Christmas, to me, is as many people as possible happy." – Tupac Shakur
