Reflection on Lessons

In reference to James 1:17-27, this letter was intended to provide first-century Christians with instruction in godly behavior. Here, Christians are encouraged to listen carefully and to act on what they hear, especially by caring for those least able to care for themselves.


Paul writes about love in Romans, Chapter 12:9-13. "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another beyond yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality."

Mission Emphasis

Causeway Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers

CIVC is a neighbors-helping-neighbors program funded through donations from participating faith congregations, businesses, individuals, and fundraising events. Services are provided without charge within the Causeway (geographical) area, regardless of faith affiliation, sex, or ethnic background.

CIVC is run completely by volunteers. Its mission is "In our world today, it is easy for neighbors to lose touch with neighbors. Causeway exists to develop caring communities in which neighbors share time and skills in response to the needs of each other." A volunteer is matched with an older adult or an individual with disabilities in order to give assistance as needed, enabling recipients to maintain a sense of well-being and independence in their own homes.
