As a committed disciple, you will be looking to serve your community by making a bigger difference. This section gives you resources and ideas to help you Do Ten Things each year to see more justice in the world.
Sent to Serve
By serving others we meet their needs and connect with them in the struggle for justice and dignity. As you work through these resources and pray about what you can do to see more justice in the world then pray in your heart "Together, with all disciples across the world i pledge myself to work so that God's kingdom may come closer."

Bishop Paul reflects on being sent to serve
Above the doorbell in the porch here at Bishop’s Lodge is a tile, with words from Adrienne von Speyr. It reads “Holiness in the Church is always service”. I wanted these words to greet visitors to this house, and to nudge me each time I came home myself. “Holiness in the Church is always service”. The inner journey and the outer journey are closely linked and are often indistinguishable. We are called and sent to serve the world God loves, and in particular to serve those who for whatever reason are on the edge of things. And so I hope that each individual disciple in the Diocese of Liverpool, and each one of our parishes, schools, fresh expressions and chaplaincies, will have a clear sense of what it is that they are doing, and can do, to act as servants.ResourceTotal current bookmarks 0
