Twenty Years Ago

a Biblical thought...
I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, the Animals, and the Elders—ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand in full song: The slain Lamb is worthy! Take the power, the wealth, the wisdom, the strength! Take the honor, the glory, the blessing! (Rev 5:11-12)

a Book thought...
Perhaps we ought to replace the word missionary with tour guide, because we cannot show people something we haven't seen. (p88 Bell)
a Dave thought...
As it is my birthday today, Kylie & I have been doing a bit of reflecting as we do. We worked out together it was 20 years ago last night that we both attended an event we we laid eyes on each other. On September 11 1988 Kylie I both attended a divisional youth crush in the Melbourne Central Division and over pizza in the YP hall in Preston we were introduced for the very first time. Well 20 years later we now have signed a couple of covenants together and have two children and life is great. We must keep divisional youth crushes on the agenda for no other reason than Salvo teenagers can develop lifelong relationships at events like these that may change their lives forever.

Just a thought.
