Today, once again, we get an example of the disciples missing the point, or at least some of them.
You can imagine the disciples confusion when they hear their teacher, their leader, say, "The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve." The radical nature of Jesus' servant leadership changed their understanding of messiahship.
How easy it is to find ourselves in the same situations as the disciples. May the hearing of today's text challenge you, and inspire you, in your service to God's will being done, here and now.

Elizabeth does not take no for an answer. She's determined, driven, and does not give up. If you need someone in your corner, I'd suggest Elizabeth. She goes to bat for the things and people she believes in, and she's notorious for getting things done. She's loud but listens well. She's sarcastic but supportive, confident but willing to learn. Elizabeth is a pastor, preacher, teacher and in her spare time a wife and mother to three kids. She loves to share a good meal, but be forewarned, she'll definitely be late.
He brings his own french press coffee with him wherever he goes, but happily shares it with anyone who needs a pick me up. His dreads have a power all their own. He'll call you on your BS, but in a way that makes you grateful for his wisdom. He's the guy you want to hang out with over any kind of beverage. His favorite non-holiday is Pentecost, and the Holy Spirit is his jam. He's a pastor, a wise-man, a husband, a father of two girls, a caffeine addict, a native Missourian, and an advocate for justice. He hates wearing shoes.
