TALK: Consider some of these ideas:

- It is now no longer enough simply to sit back and marvel at God’s gift of grace offered freely to all; the time has come to listen hard to the Spirit calling us to use our unique gifts for the good of the community. Game on!
- What gifts do you bring to the body of Christ? (What are you good at?)
- Wonder: What drives or motivates people who are vastly different from yourself? How different are they, really?
PRAY: God of unity, you have brought us together for a purpose. Show us each the way in which we might use our unique gifts in service to all. In Christ’s name, we pray, Amen.
BLESS: May God use your gifts well. Amen..
