Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
– There is an old saying: “Give someone a fish and you feed them for a day; teach someone to fish and you feed them for life.” The same is true in developing character. You can give a law or command (or even AFI) for a specific situation and you have only solved a problem temporarily. But if you teach people to think in terms of core values or ethics then a person will be able to navigate any difficult situation. It is giving a person the “why” behind their actions. That tends to change their focus altogether.
Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
– Pray for guidance in how to think in terms of values and ethics rather than simply memorizing laws and commands.
