MC Sync-Link 8

Member Care Update--August 2017

During 2017 we are syncing our CORE MC entries with our monthly MC Updates. Essentially, we'll add a monthly weblog entry that contains brief excerpts from the MC Update for that month. By linking their two strap lines together, the purpose and potential for connecting these two MCA tools becomes clear: "expanding the global impact of member care...reflections, research, and resources for good practice." May these materials encourage and equip you as you endeavor to practice member care well, with character, competence, and compassion.

Love
A command to cherish and obey

I Corinthians 13:8
Love never ceases.

In this Update we focus on love. We see love as the essence of member care. Love is the foundation, motive, strategy, goal, measure, and future of member care. It is a practical, sacrificial, and celebratory command.  Love never ceases.

We hope that you will be able to ponder and apply the brief, central thoughts from Scripture in this Update. The commands for love--for loving God and others, for laying down our lives--are meant not just for our member care work of course, but also for our overall, daily lives. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters (I John 3:16).
