The Silent Samaritan Society
Families of Strength Helping Families in Crisis
A Community Support Program of Scotland Family Counseling Center, Inc.
The Purpose of The Silent Samaritan Society
Like the Good Samaritan in the parable, the Silent Samaritan Society endeavors to help their neighbor families who are experiencing a troubled and painful time in life. Also like the Good Samaritan, the Silent Samaritan Society provides financial gifts to Scotland Family Counseling Center, Inc. to help neighbor families with counseling support and counseling fee subsidies in a quiet and humble manner. The basic purpose of the Good Samaritan Society is to respond to Jesus’ command to “Go and do likewise.” The Society meets once per year in March.
The Story of the Good Samaritan
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
Luke 10:29-37 (NIV)
