The Vermont Old Age home on Vigilance Drive Hornlee accommodates more than 50 residents, two of whom are members of our church. Many residents have very little income, surrendering their small pensions in exchange for accommodation, which is by no means five star!
Stemming from the Indaba, a group of about 10 members of the Seniors Forum have volunteered to lavish kindness on these residents by spending time with them, developing friendships and spoiling them with goodies and pampering. They will show the love of Christ to them in simple ways such as brushing and cutting hair, baking, massaging hands, reading scripture and praying with them.
What a great way to honour the dignity of those who are marginalised and often oppressed, to raise up the Image of God within them and draw them to the Kindness of Christ.
