    umm an interesting one- been hearing too many stories recently of some church leaders being so controlling and mad about power. It’s quite scary, but then what does it really mean to serve?

    I’ve begun to think we move toward control as tiny tots, and people seem to think being in control will make things better – somehow taking charge is supposed to make us happier! – it really doesn’t

    many spiritual paths teach us to give back control, and to ‘be’ with ourselves, in order to be there for others

    it does seem though, to me, that concepts like humility and service have become parodies’, and to find a way into serving – without controlling, is quite tricky

    “to find a way into serving – without controlling, is quite tricky”… interesting point.

    Thinking of politics…the odd few politicians who are genuinely in it for the greater good don’t seem to get the high profile positions. In fact they tend to be mavericks who serve best by getting under the skin of the controllers and asking the awkward questions. Think the likes of Tony Benn…a modern day prophet. A metaphor for Christian life.

    When looking without my glasses on, I saw the rosettes as cravats, and consequently thought they were grooms! Maybe this is a good idea to be upheld for the success of marriage also!
