What is seva?
Seva is a Sanskrit word that means sacred service. In the Sikh tradition, the lesson is that all service is done as though the divine is in the person you are serving. One of the Fellowship’s teachings is that the Divine spark lies in each one of us. So Seva is a devotion to that Divinity. The spirit behind our groups is the privilege of coming together as a group to give of ourselves to our community. The focus of our gift is providing a warm, welcoming experience to everyone that attends a FFT Sunday service.
