Benevolence

Benevolence is a noun. It’s a thing. And that thing is to wish well a person with whom it is not well. But benevolence is so much more than a wish for wellness. Benevolence is charity. Benevolence is generosity. Benevolence is a bus ticket to work. Benevolence is help with a mortgage payment that keeps the bank at
bay. Benevolence is milk in a fridge and diapers on a child. Benevolence is one way that our church seeks to tangibly love those within our community in times of need.
