Pirates at Macleod

a Biblical thought...
Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. (Psalm 145:3-6)

a Book thought...
Although all of us are part-leader, part-manager, we can have very different proportions of these in our make-up. An insight into how much of each we have can be gleaned from whether we are most comfortable asking the preferred-future question (what should be?) or the probable-future question (what will be?). (p111)
a Dave thought...
Kylie and I have been asked to lead meetings and preach at various corps over the years, but never quite like last night. During the week we were informed of the theme for the Youth Meeting at Macleod, it was simply 'Pirates!' So using our creative minds we came up with three props to preach from. Firstly a treasure map being a symbol for God's word something we should study and lead us in the right direction - Josh 1:8. Next was the anchor which symbolised the importance of building your life on the rock, a secure foundation, like the man in Luke 6. Lastly was the image of treasure, the aim of every pirate to discover so we put the challenge out there to see where your treasure is, as there your heart will be also - Matt 6:19. It was a lot of fun and we all learnt more about pirates & more importantly God's word as well.

Just a thought.
