this sunday (tomorrow) we’ll end our yearly cycle of scripture reading reflecting on the meaning of power from Jesus’ POV. “Poder es servir,” as the song goes is the message we’re getting. It does make me stop and reflect on how powerful I actually am. How many people in the world have little or no real choice in shaping or determining their own futures? And us, we actually have the luxury of (a.k.a., the time to) chat and think about it.

It puts a great responsibility on us to “find our way” with thoroughness, honesty, and with a view toward using our power the way God envisions it: in service of the “least.”
