Govern

One of the functions of a King is obviously to Govern. As sons and daughters of the King, ushering in His Kingdom, how are we to act in our function as Governors on behalf of the King?

Bringing ‘beauty and order’ to your sphere of influence.

Looking at Kingly governance in the light of our Core Values of Love and Mercy, and within the context of the paradigm of Healing the World, our role – in whatever might be our sphere of influence – our task is to bring beauty and order.

Governance based on Love and Mercy can never be tyrannical or despotic, but is rather modelled by Jesus as the Servant King. What a radical re-thinking!

No matter how mundane our tasks – scrubbing the floor, cleaning toilets, we are to be bringing beauty and order as sons and daughters of the Servant King.
