“The Hidden Joy of Serving: Appreciating Their Story”
When you serve other people in need, one of the best gifts is to appreciate their story. Whether at a shelter, a youth program, or a street corner, it’s so important to listen to others with caring attention. Whether the story they tell is about how their day is going or is about the day they were born, it’s important. So, ask, “How are you today?” “What was it like when you were young?” Let them know that they matter. Come explore with Hugh Taft-Morales the power of story to connect us as human beings.
