a Biblical thought...
"Be alert. If you see your friend going wrong, correct him. If he responds, forgive him. Even if it's personal against you and repeated seven times through the day, and seven times he says, 'I'm sorry, I won't do it again,' forgive him." (Luke 17:3-4)
a Book thought...
The church is a community of value where Christian missioners are encouraged by one another. (p79 Needham)
a Dave thought...
It was great to visit Melbourne 614 again on Sunday. The service had everything from a dedication to a preach from Commissioner Moretz (USE TC). The induction of the 16 order students for 2009 was also inspiring as they each said a few words on what they hope to achieve as they start this new venture.
The order is a 12 month gap program that is 24/7 as they make themselves available to serve the urban poor and homeless. It is also worth mentioning that 4 of the students have a Salvo background which has often not always been the case with the order.
So pray for these young guys as they serve, see new situations, experience fresh ministries but most of all as they grow amazingly in 2009.
Just a thought.
