a Biblical thought...
So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. (Gal 6:9-10)

a Book thought...
Busters (1965-83) are not motivated by loftier job titles and more pay. The feeling that they have an impact on the productivity of the business or ministry is what matters to them. (p133 McIntosh)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday Kylie and I took part in the Sunday morning service at Reservoir. It was a great time with 5 more Junior Soldiers enrolled and some great testimonies from both the parents and the kids. Resi only received corps status a few months ago, but when go there I have no doubt that God is moving through this place with everyday Aussies working out how the bible, life and faith all fit together.

It is interesting how we measure the success of a corps by how many attend on Sunday, as opposed to how many people are touched by God through the ministry of the corps during the week. There are corps that seem to have several hundred attending every Sunday but are expending all their energy and effort just trying to keep the believers happy, while others like Resi who had 44 present yesterday are focused on reaching out into the community 24/7. Its ironic really, but it seems the smaller the corps we are leading, the easier it is to stay focused on what we are there to do.

Just a thought.
