Monday Mission, 12/20/10
Perhaps you've seen Terry Magill and Arthur Fluker making a positive difference at Samford. They are members of our staff who serve as painters, restoring majesty to many of our neglected spaces on campus. Last week, however, they doubled as good neighbors. In the rush of noontime traffic on a street in Homewood, they were observed--wearing their Samford uniforms--as they connected the battery cables to help a stranded motorist start his car.
The world is better because our people understand that Christ asked us to be good neighbors.
