Candidates Weekend

a Biblical thought...
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. (Psalm 63:1-4)

a Book thought...
The system which subjugates all the chief officers of the Army to the vote of their subordinates and yet leaves the supreme heads in absolute control seems to us unjust, unreasonable and oppressive. (p216)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday Kylie & I went down to Geelong to spend the morning with over 50 prospective candidates. It was great just to chat and hear many stories as we met and spoke with these passionate people. The highlight though was to hear so many amazing testimonies of God working in peoples lives and giving them hope and a future. Among the many personal calling stories was Commissioner Carolyn's which just proves that God is faithful and He will do things in His perfect timing. Officership in The Salvation Army is a unique calling and if you are at all interested start praying that this is what God has called you. If you want to know more read

Just a thought.
