About 10 minutes after worship ends, we’ll gather together for Aftertalk. We hope you’ll join us! Bring your questions, stories, insights, musings, imaginings and whatever else you need to Aftertalk. Join us for some food, fellowship, laughter and ample space for reflection and real questions to help us make the transition from worship to world.
Themes for this week:
Service, The Body of Christ, Sacrifice
- One of the Hymns today says that the church must keep on rising from the dead. This is an evocative claim and likens the Church to Christ’s body in a powerful way. What does it for the church to be Christ’s body today?
- What have you seen in the news this week or experienced this week that speaks to the need for service over greatness and might?
"Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
"The x-factor of great leadership is not personality, it's humility."
- Jim Collins
"A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act."
- Mahatma Gandhi
