For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many. Mark 10:45

On this date in 1941 many gave their lives in service to our country. In a 6-month period around December 1969, the three young Trinity members honored in our memorial garden gave their lives in service in Vietnam. All went willingly and without question—just as Jesus gave his life to save us all.

Recently, an article in the Richmond Times Dispatch quoted Father Adrian Harmening from Benedictine High School that his internal guidance was not GPS but GOS. “God first, Others second and Self third.”

In the five decades I have been at Trinity, I have seen many people who have served this church faithfully. Their commitment to God and others ahead of themselves has been evident in their selfless service.

Who do you serve above all?

Let us celebrate the coming of Christ and renew our commitment to serve.
