Jesus does not consider himself to be better than others. Instead, he considers himself a servant to other people. He does not come to be served, but to serve. He calls us to do the same. He calls us to serve the poor, the widow and the orphan, the immigrant, the hungry, the thirsty, the imprisoned, whoever might need a helping hand from us. Jesus calls us to serve each other. He never counts himself as being better than we are.

Music At First is presenting something new: Home Concerts. There are three unique concerts in three Oak Park homes, featuring an intimate setting, refreshments, and fantastic musicians. The 75-minute concerts will start at 7 p.m., with a break for a talk about the host house while guests socialize over wine and light appetizers. Artists are the Julian Chin Trio on Jan. 17, the Oriana Singers on Feb. 5, and La Caccina on Feb. 12. Because seating is limited to 25 guests, tickets are available only through Brown Paper Tickets.
