30 Ways to Help Others

This list was drawn up by one of the pastors at my church, Mikado Baptist, and he gave me permission to share it here.  I keep it pinned to my bulletin board (real, not Pinterest!) as inspiration.

Just a note: my previous list of 9 Ways to be a Better Steward of the Earth now has a pinnable image!
