Business process and services concepts

There are minor, yet distinct differences between a service and a business process and Sri Nagabhirava explains what they are.

Why is the concept of service needed when concept of business process was already there? What is the difference between a service and a business process? What will a service do that a business process could not do? Is there an example?
A business process involves one or more actors, activities, or business rules across multiple swim lanes. Where as a service is a fine grained object and performs a very specific function. A service can be invoked in a context independent way while a business process is executed in a defined context.
