Littell: the Servant People
Commemoration of Pandita Mary Ramabai, Translator of the Scriptures, 1922
[Jesus:] “For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.”
—Luke 22:27 (NIV)
The Church, rightly conceived, is the whole covenant people called to serve in the world. The clergy are also part of the laity, and their true function is to help equip the laity to be the Servant People. If they turn aside to rule and to secure their own status, they have betrayed the calling of the special ministry.
... Franklin H. Littell (1917-2009)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, grant me a servant’s heart.
