a Biblical thought...
"It's what comes out of a person that pollutes: obscenities, lusts, thefts, murders, adulteries, greed, depravity, deceptive dealings, carousing, mean looks, slander, arrogance, foolishness—all these are vomit from the heart. There is the source of your pollution." (Mark 7:20-23)
a Book thought...
How many in our youth ministries right now are struggling with same-sex attractions but unable to talk with the pastor or youth pastor because they heard them say how horrible all gay people are? (p147, Kimball)
a Dave thought...
Today we travel to Camp Adanac for Territorial Music School - "Storm the Forts". These camps over the years have not only been a lot of fun but also have joined people together for lifetimes. Many of my peers met their spouses while on music camp. Not only that but also many current officers serving today had a calling to full time ministry while on camp.
So although it is called a Music School it has really been far more than that, as it is a place that has shaped young Salvation Army lives and helped young leaders establish themselves within our movement. I pray that this year there will also be decisions made and relationships started that will once again stand the test of time.
Just a thought.
