Taken from Insights by Tom

James and John began to ask Jesus to have special places around the table with Jesus in heaven. They wanted to be seen as great. The other disciples were upset with them about this. Jesus told them that in order to be great, they must be a servant and slave to everyone else.

Wanting and grabbing for power is something that many people do in this life. They want to be the leader and strive to do what it takes. Sometimes they want to be leader because they think they know what is best. Others want to be the leader because of the power they believe it holds.

While many hate dictators over them, many want to be dictators over others. They want to be the one in charge and leading others. They want the power. Most do not want to be a servant or a slave to another person.

Although Jesus has absolute power over all of creation, He does not force His power on people. Jesus came to serve all people. Every person on this earth is sentenced to a death sentence. Jesus came to serve them and remove that death sentence for them. Jesus only does what is best for each person on this earth, serving them.

Believers are to live in the same way that Jesus did. Jesus goes beyond just being a servant to another person, but being their slave. Believers are to put other people before themselves.

Take a look at your own life. Are you being served or are you serving.

Join us in Broad Ripple on the third Thursday of the month, July to November of 2021, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. for the Broad Ripple Art Walk ! 

If you haven't signed up for this month, we will host the Art Walk each Third Thursday of the month from July through November. It's free to participate for all BRVA members (Not a member yet? It's easy to join!). We'll provide you yard signs, posters, and other promotional materials. 

Your Art Walk feature can be art, music, or any other artistic activity or display. Need help finding an artist? Let us know! 

Each month, we prepare a map of the Art Walk locations, which we will post on our web site and social media, and will share with you electronically. We will post banners in several Broad Ripple locations and distribute posters and yard signs promoting the Art Walk. We will also promote the Art Walk through the BRVA's social media, web site, and e-newsletter, as well as on the Garden Sign at College Ave and Broad Ripple Ave several times throughout the season. 

The goal of the Art Walk is to share all the artistic and musical offerings of Broad Ripple while increasing foot traffic for our businesses. Help us continue Broad Ripple's reputation for arts and music! To sign up, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
