July 19 - September 6, 2009

For the next few weeks, we'll talk about a personal and communal awakening to serve. Serv-O-Matic involves a call to serve by feeding and clothing those in need. It moves us to support and encourage those who are both serving and being served. Service involves standing up for those who are oppressed or enslaved, as well as recognizing those places in ourselves that may be feeding oppression or enslavement. Service strives to both educate and to be open continually to being taught. Service often means being willing to get our hands dirty in repairing the ills of individuals and the world. In the process we find that God heals and repairs our souls as well. Finally, service is a call to love and be loved.
