Jesus Came to Serve & Calls Us to Do the Same

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.

You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.

You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.

You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.
