10 Hints for Caring in a Crisis

  1. Express care and interest straight away. Yes, you. Don’t delay.
  2. Pray for peace, hope, faith and love, even when you’re not sure what/how.
  3. Listen and let people share their burden, in their words, tears and all.
  4. Demonstrate support in tangible ways. Small acts speak volumes.
  5. Let Jesus be the consistent vision, comforting and inspiring
  6. Let the Word of God be the map, the anchor, the wind and the fuel.
  7. Mobilize and motivate others to support, together we accomplish more!
  8. Note down key issues and dates, that will show support and care!
  9. Journey along, with sincerity, humility and audacity, as a companion.
  10. Marathon not just a sprint: Go for the long run, enduring not bailing out.
