Diakonia

Leading by action. Leading by words. Leading the church to see itself in service to others.

Work. And don’t ask for thanks. Lead, and pray for them as they follow. Guide and protect as you work for the kingdom. Journey with them as they struggle. And when you struggle, let them help you. Be open to your own faults and frailties. Allow others to take the praise. Get down in the dirt and use your hands. Be the last one there sometimes. Be the first one, too. Allow others to do difficult work. Don’t be a superhero. Wash some feet.
