Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for about five minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:
- In what ways do you act in service to your congregation?
- In what ways does your work with your congregation serve you?
- What task which you have done to your congregation has been most meaningful or joyful for you? Why?
- Whose service to your congregation do you particularly value or admire? Why?
