a collective of care (a fridea)

In the middle of our church community group last night, my wife and I had the chance to volunteer to “emergency dog-sit” for another couple. (We actually love this dog; it’s a big treat for us.)

But it got me thinking, just in time for a Fridea…

Build opportunities for those in your college ministry to serve each other.

How often do your students tutor each other (including fellow students they don’t know very well)? Do they give each other rides home? Help each other move in to the dorms? Donate to each others’ mission trips? Attend each other’s recitals?

There’s a balance here, and you know your ministry better than I do. But that’s why this is a Fridea: for you to weigh if your ministry could be known, among many other things, as a collective of care.
