“Kindness Changes Everything”: a lay-led service about being kind.
First, let’s be clear, we are not talking about being nice. Nice is sweet, gentle, comfortable. Nice rolls over. Nice doesn’t want to offend. Nice doesn’t make waves.
But kindness is so much more. Kindness doesn’t sit still. Kindness sees a need and offers to help. And kindness acts in many big and small ways. Kindness is sometimes uncomfortable, because it requires us to not stay comfortable, to not stay nice and docile.
Kindness isn’t always easy. But kindness matters.
