For your consideration and reflection:

  • What motivates you to ‘serve’ at your local church… really?
  • How would you describe God’s mercy? Looking to God, do you wish for mercy, hope for mercy or expect mercy?
  • How might you cultivate your sense of freedom in God’s service?

You might like to turn your reflections into prayer.
