Volunteering At Church Quotes By A. J. Jacobs

There's almost always a church youth group at the soup kitchen. I have yet to see an atheists' youth group. Yeah, I know, religious people don't have a monopoly on doing good.

Volunteering At Church Quotes By Dale McGowan

That churchgoers do the lion's share of the charitable work in our communities is simply untrue. They get credit for it because they do a better job of tying the good works they do to their creed.

from AIDS hospices to food shelves to international aid workers to those feeding the hungry and housing the homeless and caring for the elderly
comes from the category of "unchurched" volunteers. — Dale McGowan

And each time we say yes because we want to please someone else, we are negatively impacting ourselves. I — Jessica N. Turner
