    Q: I’ve noticed on Facebook that there are a lot of dogs and cats who have gone missing from their homes. Thanks to the Lost and Found Animals Fluvanna page, many find their way home with some community effort.

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
