   One of the things I had to get used to when I moved to Wisconsin over 20 years ago was the Wisconsin wave. Everywhere I drove, people waved at me. Including strangers. It was very weird for me, coming from the Chicago area where you never gestured to anyone (at least, an appropriate gesture!) for fear of what they might do in return. So to come here and wave to people took a little getting used to. Now, I do it without even thinking and I appreciate the waves I get.

  A small act of kindness, of friendliness, can go a long way. In thinking about this, I realized that this is one way that we proclaim the Gospel. It might seem weird that this would be so, but sometimes proclaiming the Gospel is something that happens without words. Small acts of friendliness, of kindness, of compassion, can make a huge difference. It can show someone that they are seen, that they are not alone or invisible in the world.

  And why would think that our God could not act through those small actions of ours? God works in, through, and amongst us and when we show people that kindness and that love, God in Jesus Christ is present and active. Proclaiming the Gospel isn’t always words. It is actions too and we are called to be the hands and feet of God in the world. We proclaim the Gospel by who we are and showing the world who we are. Showing them love. Kindness. Compassion. In ways both big and small.

   So continue to wave to people in your car. Offer a smile to that person you pass in the grocery store. Do those small acts of friendliness and kindness. Wave to that person you pass on the road. You never know what God will do through that small act. It could change a life. 

  May God bless you this day and always!
