Christian Kindness Ideas During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Kindness is always impactful. However, during these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, kindness is all the more impactful as people all around the world are feeling scared, hopeless, and sad. For Christians, adding the message of God's love and grace into our kindness has an everlasting impact.
Here are a few practical Planned Acts of Christian Kindness (P.A.C.K.) ideas that adhere to the COVID-19 social isolation guidelines. Make sure to include a Christian Kindness Card with each P.A.C.K. to infuse God's love into each act. These P.A.C.K. ideas are great to do for medical workers, elderly people, overwhelmed parents, and the homeless population - to name a few.
