Parents and teachers of churches and other charitable organizations can package and/or distribute Life Pax using tangible activities to increase awareness surrounding issues of homeless and giving. Cornerstone Christian Middle School, in Vancouver, Washington has packaged over 800 Life Pax. Teacher, Kathy Cassel writes, “We had just read a story in our literature book about a boy trying to help the homeless when the opportunity to help package Life Pax was offered to our students.
The literature selection triggered a lively class discussion about the problem in our own community, so our students were very excited. It was a practical and safe way to obey the Biblical command ‘to do good and share.’ It was also a great way to connect school to real life.”
For the Christian, Our Lord’s directives are to feed His sheep, look after the poor among us, and share Jesus with the world. This is achieved in a positive manner not by enabling, but by encouraging relationship and care in a tangible way. Food banks and pantries can be stocked with a supply of Life Pax making them readily available for community outreach. Group interaction and fellowship can be the byproduct of the packaging process if the organization chooses this option. Because of its simplicity, small Sunday School classes of all ages can package Life Pax. Hand written personal messages of hope and encouragement help give the program its unique inter-relational quality
