The Course talks a great deal about loving our brothers and forgiving our brothers, but does it talk about actually serving them? So many of us feel a pull to serve, but wonder what role service has in the Course.
This workshop is based on the premise that service is a major theme in the Course. Its goal is to help participants actually move into some form of Course-based service. It talks about the meaning of service in the Course, outlining 50 principles of Course-based service. It also answers the question "Whom are we to serve?" and in the process tries to break down our perception of another as "stranger." It provides practical training in Course-based service, the root of which is seeing the face of Christ in another, as well as watching our mind for thoughts that block helpfulness.
On the final day of the workshop, participants took part in a "field experience," in which they visited a prearranged site where people needed service. Two of these sites were nursing homes. At the site, they then attempted to apply the approach to service they had learned about at the workshop. Most sat down and talked with a particular individual. Upon returning, they processed their experiences with the group. The workshop closes by having participants look at their aspirations, fears, and excuses around the topic of service.
