The idea of shared public service lies at the very heart of the mission for Interfaith Action of Central Texas.
We believe that the “Golden Rule” of compassion guides all of the great faith traditions and that one of the most powerful ways to enact that compassion is through interfaith service programs.
We invite individuals and teams from area faith communities and to join us in serving some of Central Texas’ most vulnerable populations: impoverished senior citizens and international refuges through our exemplary service programs: iACT for Refugees and Hands on Housing. We also help recruit teams for the annual CROP Hunger Walk which raises funds for local food banks and hunger relief world-wide.
We believe that service is one of the most powerful expressions of our faiths and that is best enACTed together.
The Golden Rule in various traditions:
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
“Never do to others what you would not like them to do to you.”
“This is the sum of all duty: do nothing to others which, if it were done to you, would cause you pain.”
“None of you is a believer until you love for your neighbor what you love for yourself.”
“What is hateful to you, do not do to others.”
