3 Simple Rules: Do Good

Passage: 3 John 1:11
Service Type:

Bible Text: 3 John 1:11 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | Each day as we get more information about the virus and our next steps it’s easy to get confused as there is a lot to take in and sometimes the instructions can be contradicting. I can’t help but think, can we just get back to the basics? So many new ideas or complicated details and it’s all changing very quickly. As people of faith, I believe there are some basic practices we can take with us into this brave new world. The founder of our denomination, John Wesley, wrote about three simple rules that help people apply their faith to everyday life, and not only live in a way that honors God but encourages growth and development of our faith. Today more than ever I think it is important for people of faith to be mindful of what is guiding us on this journey. Join us as we explore how we can live into these three simple rules: 1) Do no harm, 2) Do good, and 3) Stay in love with God.

Do Good
The second simple rule focuses on our choices and actions of intentionally DOING GOOD to others. This is not simply referring to “random acts of kindness,” or “paying it forward,” but of attuning one’s heart and life to what God would have us do to increase the greater good of all
