We find our deepest purpose when we are using our strengths in service of others. As we come together in community, it is the joining of many strengths that enriches us all. As a community, we provide space for strengths to be nurtured and grow. We celebrate the different strengths that people bring and have the humility to serve and be served.
As Jesus gathered His team of disciples together, He gathered people with very different strengths and backgrounds and patiently provided space and learning opportunities for them to grow. He walked with them, shared wisdom through story and persisted with them even when they let Him down. As we journey through life, He is walking with us, inviting us to learn through story and persisting with us when we fail. When we use our strengths to make a difference to others we live out God’s most important commandment to ‘love our neighbour’. We find joy and purpose in service.
