Building on a Firm Foundation, Tuesday Evening

Our Gospel reflection this evening is taken from Luke 22:25-27, where Jesus is resolving a dispute among His disciples as to which of them is greatest, and from Matthew 20:28/Mark 10:45, where Jesus is addressing the request of James and John to receive the seats of honour in His Kingdom (there are other passages, also – next week!).  In both cases Jesus is faced with His disciples making power plays against each other.

Our reflection time this evening could be on the subversive strength of serving others – for this is the way of His Kingdom.  It flies in the face of all power-plays and political positioning.  Your Kingdom come on earth as in heaven.
