For Your Meditation
“According to Jesus, authority in the Christian community is not to be gained by force, nor by political maneuvering, nor by the supposed power of any ordination, but by humble service as a diakonos.  To achieve the place of preeminence we must become doulos—servant—to others.” ~ C. Brownlow Hastings

  God be with you ‘til we meet again
by His counsels guide, uphold you,
with Her sheep securely fold you;
God be with you ‘til we meet again.
