Be The Inspiration!

Rotary International President-elect Barry Rassin laid out his vision for the future of the organization on Sunday, calling on leaders to work for a sustainable future and to inspire Rotarians and the community at large.

Rassin, a member of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, unveiled the 2018-19 presidential theme, Be the Inspiration, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. “I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”

January is Vocational Service month
The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities
of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the Second Object, which calls on
Rotarians to “encourage and foster”:
 
• High ethical standards in business and professions
 
• The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
 
• The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society
 
As a Rotarian, how can you put these ideals into action? Consider these suggestions:
 
• Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ vocations.
 
• Use your professional skills to serve a community.
 
• Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your own words and actions.
 
• Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations.
 
• Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
 
If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organizations.

How to describe your Rotary Club in three or four sentences.

So often Rotarians are asked “What is Rotary and what does your Rotary Club do?” It is essential that we teach our members how to answer that question in an interesting and concise manner. I’ve heard some of the dullest and uninteresting responses to these questions you could ever imagine. The answer must convey an excitement of a fun and informative meeting, the warmth of a group of friends, the prestige of a hundred year old worldwide fellowship,  the rewards of building a better community and the pride in working for peace and world understanding. Most of our members must be taught how to describe the rewards of belonging to one of the world’s most influential and  prestigious organizations. When someone asks, “What is Rotary? Or tell me about your Rotary Club.” All of our members should have a quick response:
 
“Our Rotary Club belongs to Rotary International, which was the world’s first service Club, organized over 100 years ago. We are one of the 32,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries and territories in the world. We meet every week where we combine a lot of fun with interesting programs, and then we take on a whole variety of service activities for our community and reach out to people in need around the world. We represent a cross section of our community because we promote high ethical standards and good business practices. A lot of our activities involve young people in our area, as well as the poor and aged, and our number one world wide activity is the eradication of polio in the world….  And we always have lots of fun. There are so many more things I could tell you if you are really interested and have a moment.”
 
When asked “What is Rotary?” each of us should have a prepared response on the tip of our tongue. Almost all of us have ready answers when asked about our business, profession, hobby, church, college, family or grandchildren. It is essential that every one of our members learn how to talk about our Rotary Club in an exciting and convincing manner. And we may have to actually teach the Rotarians in our Club how to do it.

Rotary Foundation Thought

 


 

This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Leaving your legacy through The Rotary Foundation.

―The Rotary Foundation has helped touch lives all over the world by putting polio drops in mouths of children, digging wells so clean water is available for drinking and bathing, providing education opportunities, and much more. By becoming a member of the Bequest Society, you can help ensure that important projects like these continue in the future. If the projects and programs that Rotary completes today are important to you, then please become a Bequest Society member so that Rotary is secure for tomorrow.‖ — Rotarian Jean Waltke
 
The ABC's of Rotary
 
 
 

Invocations at Club Meetings

In many Rotary clubs, it is customary to open weekly meetings with an appropriate invocation or blessing. Usually such invocations are offered without reference to specific religious denominations or faiths.
 
Rotary policy recognizes that throughout the world Rotarians represent many religious beliefs, ideas, and creeds. The religious beliefs of each member are fully respected, and nothing in Rotary is intended to prevent each individual from being faithful to such convictions.
 
At international assemblies and conventions, it is traditional for a silent invocation to be given. In respect for all religious beliefs and in the spirit of tolerance for a wide variety of personal faiths, all persons are invited to seek divine guidance and peace in their own way. It is an inspiring experience to join with thousands of Rotarians in an international “silent prayer” or act of personal devotion. Usually all Rotary International Board and committee meetings begin with a few moments of silent meditation. In this period of silence, Rotary demonstrates respect for the beliefs of all members, who represent the religions of the world.
 
Since each Rotary club is autonomous, the practice of presenting a prayer or invocation at club meetings is left entirely to the traditions and customs of the individual club, with the understanding that these meeting rituals always be conducted in a manner that will respect the religious convictions and faiths of all members and are nondenominational in nature.
