Doing the essentials (habits) does something in us over time. When we do small things like give, attend church, serve, we are changed in big ways.
We want people to understand HOW we do ministry in the Vineyard - which is the way of Jesus. Jesus has edges AND he crossed a lot of lines. We posture ourselves to pastor people in imperfect places.
Caring for someone when they are weak, vulnerable, sick, or dying is a way to demonstrate the sacrificial, humble love of Jesus. Christ gave up his rights and took on the nature of a servant.
