MU Focus for the week: Servanthood
Jesus did something that no Jewish man would do, washing
his friends’ feet –far too grotty & far too up close &
personal. This was meant to be an identifying witness action for his
followers! Are we expected to go against convention to follow his
example? We all know people who put themselves out of their comfort
zone to help at the drop in centre, visit the prison. MU members in
Papua New Guinea are seeking to turn the tide on the negative effects
of gender-based violence. They work on projects to educate men on
shared responsibility and mutual respect in the hope of lowering domestic
violence levels. 2/3 of women are affected. We thank God for their commitment to follow Jesus’
example of servanthood.
