The attached story is a sign (a small "s" sacrament) of what I find in Lancaster County. Lancastrians are helpful. They help each other. They help strangers. They help people all over the world. Whenever a disaster happens, Lancastrians (called by some invisible force) start hopping in vans and buses and heading to the place so that they can help others. Many serve in this way on their vacation!
A lot of this comes from the hands on, practical focus of the Anabaptist community. Thank God for them and may all of us learn to be more like this!
