Service

SERVICE—A beautiful word fallen upon bad days. — Claude McKay
I absolutely love the phrase in the Episcopal service that goes, “in whose service is perfect freedom.”
Service is really a beautiful word. It connotates respect, humility, and love. When we serve others we become part of something much bigger than ourselves. Service frees us from self, yet teaches how to care for ourselves as well as others.
When we serve we feel worthwhile, that we are making a difference, and we tingle with a good feeling all over.
When we meditate and pray this morning ask to be shown where we can be of service and for the courage to carry out what we know needs to  be done.
