Advisory, February 11

“Help your brother's boat across and your own will reach the shore”.  Hindu Proverb
        Whose “boat” have you helped lately?
        What was the reaction of the person you helped?
        How did this action also help you?

We watched a good video as well and talked about the message. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbarcG5skBs
