Have you had a chance to see the new brochure "Welcome to Avera - Called to Serve?" It states that the Sisters have always maintained a focus of meeting the health care needs of the communities they serve. Their calling is, and has always been, serving others out of love for God.
I believe the Sisters are doing exactly that, and they are asking us to do the same. We are taught by our faith that all blessings that come our way are God given, thus we have a calling to pay it forward, especially to those who are in need.
Is this our calling? Yes, I feel each and every one of us have been called to serve by God. And I know the more we respond to this call, more will be given to us.
