Service & Justice
As Frederick Beuchner reminds us, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” St. Mark's offers many opportunities for mutual ministry. The best place to serve is where your talents and gifts meet the needs around you. Get to know others while working to expand God’s dream here in St. Louis and beyond. Explore some of the ways that you can serve.
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:17-18)
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)
