A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

Eric Voorhees is an active member of The Special Gathering who loves to serve others.  Acquainted with hard work, he has been employed for many years at a nursing home.  He is well respected by the residents there and by his employers.  The Special Gathering is a ministry within the intellectually disabled community.  Voorhees is a deacon and sings in our choir.

In Matthew 11:28,  Jesus said, “Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”  I can ask the Lord to carry my cross and to help me with all my burdens.

A child is not always pleased by what a loving parent does, and yet…”We know that in everything God works for our good”  (Romans 8:28).

I can find God’s hand in the events of each day because “the old has passed away, behold the new has come” ( II Corinthians 5:17).  With God, new doors are opening in my life and they lead the way to a fuller life.
