Sunshine Sunday

Around 1977 the National Shut-In Day Society produced this poster to encourage people to visit a shut-in.

Wow! Those clothes look familiar. Clothes like hers hung in my closet, when I married Ray late in 1974. This really takes me back — even down to her shoulder bag.

I had never heard of the National Shut-In Day or of the Society, but I love the idea. On this third Sunday in October, the world must have many more “shut-ins” than it did in 1977. Many of them would be frightened if we gave them a visit. Still, we can think of other ways to do what the poster says and share ourselves with a shut-in and make this their Sunshine Sunday.

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love;
give preference to one another in honor;
Romans 12:10
