volunteering

I hope you guys are ok! Just thought I'd say hi and wish you all a Holy Ash Wednesday.

Also: I have recently started volunteering for some secular nonprofits.

What is your opinion on volunteering for charity (either secular or faith based)? Do you think that volunteering for any charity, faith focused or otherwise, can be motivated by God?

Thanks for being a part of this community. You guys rock.

It's great that you've started volunteering. As long as you are volunteering to help others, then you're motivated by God. Volunteering for a charity is fantastic. It doesn't matter whether the charity is secular or faith based. However, if you want to be surrounded by like minded people or those who accept your beliefs, then it's best to go with a faith focused charity. Best of luck with your volunteering! What charities have you volunteered for, if you don't mind my asking? :)

That was my logic too, I was just trying to see what everyone else thought and get some discussion going because this place is dead. Haha.

Currently I'm volunteering at: http://www.safehome-ks.org/ (Domestic Violence Nonprofit)

http://www.mocsa.org/ (Sexual Violence Nonprofit)

Last semester I was here as well: http://www.thewholeperson.org/ (Helping People With Disabilities Nonprofit)
