The cross

The symbol we have this week to add to the cross is the bowl and a towel, which speaks of the act which Jesus did of washing his disciples feet.

Time of reflection and prayer

Lets just pray together for those in our society who are serving, and then for ourselves as we seek to be servants as well:

  • all those in our society, and particularly Christians, who are in serving or caring roles such as teachers, doctors, nurses, social workers and community magistrates
  • all those who volunteer and work tirelessly to serve others whether in their family, congregation, church, community or by fundraising and campaigning for those in some of the world’s poorest communities
  • Ourselves to grow as servants, loving well and much through our words and deeds.

Lord Jesus, remind us that the king who leads us does so with humility as well as majesty, and cause us to build your kingdom by your Spirit, rather than by might or power – that we might be channels for more love, peace, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in our world.
