Leader: Rev. Colin Cress; Ruth Ellen Stone
I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me....Just as you did these to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me." 
                                                                                 - Jesus of Nazareth
