I think menial service is incredibly important - another one of life's great paradoxes.
Actually, it would be more accurate to say that I believe in the servant model of Jesus' life - which makes all service important, especially the stuff that those who won't deign to do it call menial. To me, the menial is the heart of the Gospel - the Good News that our menial concerns matter to He who controls the universe and should matter equally to His children.
I also think this probably is where we fail to understand Jesus the most in our practical lives.
