The 'how' of doing more for others

Wow, what a treat to be faced with three unexpected hours of time at home alone, especially since my house had seemed like Grand Central Station for most of the summer. I was thrilled and looked forward to the peace and quiet.

Getting comfortable in the sun room chair, I decided to finish reading that week’s Christian Science Sentinel (July 23 & 30, 2012 issue).

The issue’s focus on community was especially dear to me. I felt that I was pretty good at praying about specific situations in my family, church, and work life, but I embraced the issue’s reminders to broaden my prayers. For example, in Walter Rodgers’s article, “Borderless community,” he tells us that “… the more joy we can sow in our communities, the more happiness we harvest for ourselves and others.”
