Ephesians 2:10 says we are God’s masterpieces, created in Christ to do good works. When we volunteer for our parish, we are doing God’s work and fulfilling His plan for our lives. Imagine this: God created you, His masterpiece, to do awesome stuff. Through Christ, you can and do make a difference. When you serve, you are helping to change lives. This is true regardless of where you serve.
