The universe was created by a God that gives. You have to give it away to keep it. Its's the Jesus way.

- What negative associations do you have with the idea of service?
- In the video Matt Russell says “When our lives are broken open and we understand that life is a gift being given, we see that our lives are not our own, our lives are meant to be given away in relationship, this is where life is.” When have you seen this connection between being-broken-open and being given-away-in-relationship?
- Think of a time when you experienced being cared for by someone in a way that was respectful and loving? What was the experience like for you?
