River City Church - Finance Committee and member
2017-present

River City Church's vision is "Glory to God. Good to people."

 

When we live a life
Of service,
Certain truths
Become evident.

The truth of Honesty,
Because our Spirit
Won't truly guide
The Deceitful.

The truth of Humility,
Because the Universe
Only shows pathways to
The Worthy.

The truth of Compassion
Because His way
Gives us Empathy for feeling
True suffering.

We celebrate those
Who don't get distracted
Or dissuaded when temptations
Unveil themselves, uninvited.

To you, we say Thank You.
To you, we say Well Done.
Lives are better because of you
And more is yet to come.
