    Any good religion recognizes the importance and need of service. A common trait that seems to bind all worthwhile life philosophies together is the principle that whatever life may means, we are all in this together. While we are, at the last reckoning, on our own, and responsible for taking care of ourselves, a great measure of our worth as human beings takes in what we do to help those around us.

    This is exactly how this should work. You may be the only representation of Jesus others see. The LDS is not the only church--and I, not a member, do recognize them, and others with differing beliefs but who try to follow Jesus, as Christians--about which non-members may have heard only disagreements and negatives, including the one of which my wife and I are members here, which I had heard in other churches was somewhere out with the snake handlers or cultists, that turns out to be solidly Biblical, and on of the benefits, along with our getting to know each other better, as well as letting those who may not be believing and practicing Christians see God's love in action.
