168 Hours

a Biblical thought...
Paul and Barnabas handpicked leaders in each church. After praying— their prayers intensified by fasting—they presented these new leaders to the Master to whom they had entrusted their lives. (Acts 14:23)

a Book thought...
Jesus bluntly suggested that if we are in the game for what we can get out of it, whether that be crowns, mansions or individual blessings here on earth, then we have lost sight of the true value of religion, and the genuine benefit of personal sacrifice. (p89 Frost)
a Dave thought...
We now have our DYs & Youth Workers across the territory committed to bringing 883 youth to INSANE in January. This territorial youth event has the potential to unite our young people and discover what it means to be a Salvo today. There will be opportunities for our youth to be creative, have fun, talk about what it means to be a follower of Jesus, become a follower of Jesus, and also to get out and do something practical for others. To keep this event as cheap as possible we will be sleeping in classrooms at Melbourne High School. We are hoping to run INSANE for 168 hours from 2pm Sunday 11th January through to 2pm Sunday 18th January.

When I look back on my own journey it has been certain camps and events where I have encountered God and my spiritual journey took on a whole new meaning. I'm praying once again that the 168 hours we spend together in January 09 will be a time when God speaks to us each and new commitments will be made.

Just a thought.
