In Pastor Ricki’s excellent sermon today, she told the story of “The Golden Chain,” in which this quote was used:
“I expect to pass through life but once.
If therefore, there be any kindness I can show
or any good thing I can do to any fellow being,
let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it,
as I shall not pass this way again.”
The conclusion of that story includes these words:
“Kindness is the Golden Chain that holds our society together.”
