Reflection:

1. What are your hopes and dreams for work today? How have you invited Jesus into the work that you delight in and/or desire to do?

2. In what way then have you given yourself to the work of the church in the past? In light of the present how do you desire to join into the work of the church? What new or rebuilt ministries should be taking place in the work of the church?
