Lenten Meditation : Our Service

“We do not serve the weak or the broken. What we serve is the wholeness in each other and the wholeness in life. The part in you that I serve is the same part that is strengthened in me, when I serve. Unlike helping, and fixing and rescuing, service is mutual. There are many ways to serve, and strengthen the life around us: through friendship, or parenthood or work, by kindness, by compassion, by generosity, or acceptance. Through our philanthropy, our example, our encouragement, our active participation, our belief. No matter how we do this, our service will bless us.”
