To become a doulos of Christ, it all begins with an effort to grow in biblical literacy and accountability to God's instruction. From there, cultivating watchfulness and caring for "the least of these." As a doulos in God's household, Dn. Sean Reid reminds us to lead as one under authority and to practice offering the "first fruits" to the Lord who so graciously provides. Dn. Sean is owner ofArrowhead Coaching and Facilitation Solutions and serves the St. Maria of Paris Mission in Hamilton, ON.
