Each week the staff team start the week with a time of worship and prayer.  This week Barry, Head of Community Services was leading, and challenged us on the topic of humility.

As I sit here fourteen hours later, I’m still challenged.  For example, what does it mean to act as a conduit between God and people in our community; what does it mean to be pleased with what we’ve been used to do, but not to be proud.

We sang The Servant King by Graham Kendrick, and the words of the last verse and chorus, some big thoughts to dwell on:

So let us learn how to serve, And in our lives enthrone him, Each others needs to prefer, For it is Christ we’re serving

This is our God, the Servant King, He calls us now to follow him, To bring our lives as daily offering, Of worship to the Servant King
