Be a Point of Light

1000 Points of Light is an intentional initiative created to help us shift our perspective and open our eyes to the everyday opportunities that God sets before each and every one us.
 
Between May and September, our hope is to make 1000 intentional points of light in our community and around the world. 
 
A point of light is any action that shares the love of Jesus by encouraging, supporting, praying, loving, or giving to someone in need that day.
 
So whether you, encourage a stranger, help your neighbor, support a co-worker, pray for a family member or lead someone in making a life changing decision to follow Jesus Christ, do it with intentionality and purpose, knowing that you are being a light in the darkness. 
 
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. 
John 1:5 
  • Actions that encourages, supports or shares the love of Jesus.

I let a neighbour know they had left the car lights on when they parked in their driveway.

Gave friend some great kitchen appliances we weren’t using anymore.

A neighbourhood intermediate and primary school had a large scale muscial production this year. Maybe there was a 100+ student and teacher cast and crew. The production was elaborate with full stage sets, stage lighting, choreography, wireless microphones and a live orchestra. I volunteered to provide the photography of the practice and full run throughs. The end result was a beautiful package of 170 photos capturing moments of grade 8 to 6 actors, singers, dancers and choir ensembles at their very best. They looked amazingly professional. The photos were an powerful record of the school’s vitality and history. Coincidently, one pair of grandparents in WPA saw their granddaughter’s performance in a significant role and received a few dramatic photos from the photo set. 2018-05-21

On garbage days, especially when it’s windy, I pick up the garbage (Recycle, compost, non-recyclable) bins for my neighbours, after the trucks have passed through, and I get home, and put them on or near their front porches.

I shared the gospel with someone who is 14. I asked her what she would like to studybwhen she goes to university…evolution of man was her answer…. What a leeway. I shared with her the purpose of her life in light of the cross. She was open. I pray holy spirit will draw her in.

It has been my pleasure this night to reach out to a homeless guy whom I found at the entry of my apartment sleeping without any blanket. I offered a spare duvet for him to keep himself warm! It was quite exciting to have a chart with him! May our God provide housing to him!

I opened the door to my vice principal in school
