Life of Serving

Jeremy Bentham was the founder of London’s University College. When he died in 1832, according to his instructions, his skeleton was reconstructed, given a wax head, dressed in his best suit, and put in a glass case in the meeting room of the college’s board of governors.

For many years the deceased Bentham attended every meeting of the board and was always described in the minutes as “present, but not voting.”

Sometimes we are present, but not serving!
