Doing Good on Good Friday

Good Friday

This year, Easter and Passover fall at the same time.  For Christians, Easter weekend recalls how Jesus died on the cross and rose again.  For Jewish people, Passover is the most-celebrated Jewish holiday of the year.   For  others, it might only  mean a nice long weekend.  Whatever it means to you, perhaps it can serve as a reminder of the values many people seem to have let fall to the wayside in society today.

Robert Green Ingersoll, wrote, “Hands that help are better far than lips that pray”.  Perhaps today can be a day that you do something good for someone else.

  • Donate to a food pantry
  • Bring flowers to a nursing home
  • Make dinner for someone else
  • Donate gently used clothing to a shelter
  • Bring pet food to a shelter

There are so many things that you can do to help out someone else.  So whether you are Christian, Jewish, something else, or nothing at all,  I hope you can appreciate the life lessons that are celebrated this time of the year.
