Life is exciting and rewarding, full of challenge and frustration. Yet suddenly more than half is gone, and we have done so little. So we recognize that we are not called to save the world. Christ has done that. But we are called to be faithful.
Peter J. Dyck has spent most of his life with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a church service agency. He defines Christian service as living for others, in any role that truly benefits others, whether at home or abroad.
In these meditations for all ages, Dyck shares stories and insights from his wealth of experience, helping refugees, building peace, and challenging audiences. He especially promotes intergenerational family life.
With all our efforts, he says, we eventually learn that our greatest satisfaction comes from relationships with other people. We often fail and need forgiveness. With Paul, we confess that we see only "in a mirror, dimly", and "know only in part". We look forward to knowing fully, when we see our Lord "face to face". Meanwhile, the greatest grace is love.
