Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

-Teresa of Avila

 

This past weekend, Kay Royal, Jenny Ridnour, and I attended the CanCare Volunteer Conference in Houston, Texas. As members of our CanCare Atlanta leadership team we wanted to both participate and represent at the conference. We were excited as CanCare revealed our new website and branding.

Here is the new CanCare logo:

 

Our new motto is "A survivor by your side." Since the formation of CanCare in 1990 at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, CanCare's mission has been to assure that no one has to endure cancer alone. We have aspired to live by the quote of Teresa of Avila and serve as the body of Christ through sharing the gift of survivorship. St. Paul encourages us in a similar fashion:

 

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.  

-Romans 12: 1-3

 

How we participate in and represent the body of Christ in our world is through using our bodies. In the CanCare logo, look for the human figure in the middle. You will see a person extending their arms to bring two separate entities together. Through the faithful participation of JCPC in the mission of CanCare we have helped to extend the arms of Christ to many difference parts of our country. This year, two of our CanCare trainers helped to establish chapters in Colorado Springs and Charleston! There are more to come.

 

On a final note, CanCare Atlanta is partnering with Emory Johns Creek Hospital to discuss the newest cancer treatment: Immunotherapy. Click here if you are interested. 

 
Prayer for Today

 

Help us be the arms of Christ, O Lord, to embrace our world. Teach us to be the eyes of Christ so that we see the needs of our world. Inspire us to be the feet of Christ so we will take your good news out into our world. Amen.
