Nealson

a Jesus thought...
"There is far more at stake here than religion. If you had any idea what this Scripture meant—'I prefer a flexible heart to an inflexible ritual'—you wouldn't be nitpicking like this. The Son of Man is no lackey to the Sabbath; he's in charge." (Matthew 12:6-8)

a Godly thought...
Jesus is looking for help, for he cannot do the work alone. (p181 Bonhoeffer)

a leading thought...
Without singleness of purpose, there can be no adequate leadership. (p93 Barber)

a Dave thought...
Nealson Munn is a man worth getting to know. I have just had the privilege in working with Nealson on our book INSANE. He arrived in Australia where I picked him up from Melbourne airport three months ago to the day, and it seems everyday since we have been discussing elements of our literary project.
At 12.30am this morning we just had our farewell supper for him at Stokers.
In these three months Nealson has not only managed to write a 200 page book but also befriend many people and have a profound influence on so many of us by his polite and engaging manner. The research and writing he has done for the book is so thorough and as he is a true perfectionist, the quality of his work is outstanding.
So you can do yourself a favour and get a copy of this riveting piece of literature or better still meet the man behind the book as he is well and truly a quality guy.
Thanks Nealson for the this fast paced three month journey, I'm sure you agree its been worth it, and a time we will look back on with great memories.
Just a thought.
