I have gone on multiple mission trips with my church that have completely changed my view of the world. Those mission trips have and continue to help me to see what I have and what I am capable of doing.

The liturgy for certain from the beginning readings was focused on remembering what the Lord started and throughout remembering the different events that changed the world. Also, the whole service was a celebration for certain, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
