April 16, 2019: John 13; Luke 22.
We practiced for the “We Remember Service” (Maundy Thursday) and Easter Sunday. The teams cover a range of ages from teens to fifties. There were two sets of husbands and wives. One couple’s son played with them.
A new worship leader directed this diverse crew. Yet, we remained a team. Several made suggestions. There were camaraderie and a lot of laughter. (Best comment: “I’m like a milk bucket under a bull over here.”) We are looking forward to the services!

At the Last Supper, Jesus gave us the example of a Godly leader. The one in complete charge of everything chose to serve.
John 13:3-5, “Jesus knew that the Father had put Him in complete charge of everything, that He came from God and was on His way back to God. (4) So He got up from the supper table, set aside His robe, and put on an apron. (5) Then He poured water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, drying them with His apron.” The Message
Everyone is equal on a team. Each has a voice, their opinion matters. They all see to their own duties.
Luke 22:6, “Let the senior among you become like the junior; let the leader act the part of the servant.” The Message
Proverbs 16 gives us a warning against those who do not work as a team.
Proverbs 16:5, “God can’t stomach arrogance or pretense; believe me, He’ll put those upstarts in their place.” The Message
