To serve with wisdom, patience and courage

Wisdom, light, love, and Good News. How do you fit in?

Comforting the sad

Heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be served but to serve: bless all who, following in his steps, give themselves to the service of others; that with wisdom, patience and courage, they may minister in his name to the suffering, the friendless and the needy; for the love of him who laid down his life for us, your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
