Re-blog: Muslim volunteers help so Christians can attend Church on Christmas Eve

Just when few sense-less tweets of a certain president make you feel uncomfortable and put doubts in your mind about the future of humanity, finding about an act of kindness from unknown corner of the world restores your faith in mankind.

Many thanks to JoAnna for sharing this story about Muslim volunteers who help a Christian pastor this Christmas Eve.

Our world is full of such kindness, not just with nonsense of a high ranking individual.

Anything is Possible!

Salem United Church of Christ normally provides meals and shelter every Sunday night for homeless women and children. But since Christmas eve was on a Sunday, they didn’t know how they’d be able to attend Christmas Eve church and meet their usual rotation in the BEDS plus homeless program. When the pastor shared this dilemma with an interfaith association, Karen Danielson, of the Bridgeview Mosque Foundation offered the services of Muslim volunteers.

This story demonstrates one more example of how we are stronger together:

The world goes our way sometimes but most of the time, it doesn’t. We want things to happen the way we want it but that is not the case always.

We go through both good and bad times. We smile and cry. Sometime we fly high and sometimes we fall on the ground. Life is always about two opposite things.
