Spread the Love As You Go

Here is a list of ideas for you to do as you go about your day to help spread love to our community! Feel free to come up with your own ideas as well. We would encourage you to spend your first few moments of the day in prayer, asking God to put in your path people who could use a little love and kindness. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with compassion and give you eyes to see those around you. We would LOVE to see how you’ve been spreading love during this season. If you post a photo on social media use the hashtag #NLSpreadTheLove so we can all see how God is using each other to transform our communities!
