Much talk of service is nonsense. In the early 1800s Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington, saw the truce flag go up on a fortress he had completely encircled. So he sent a letter to the commander. The letter read:
Sir: You have fought honorably but all your hope is lost. My guns are trained this moment on your every position. Surrender, sir, or I will blow you to perdition.
Your humble and obedient servant,
Jesus said that he came “not to be served, but to serve….” Unusual for anyone with dominant power to act this way. Jesus did, and does. In the weeks before Easter, we’re seeing how. As always, we’d love to have you join us.
All the Best,
