Surrender 2010 Launch

a Biblical thought...
This is what the LORD says: "Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

a Book thought...
A pure heart is a heart that has been cleansed by the Holy Spirit from all sin, and enabled to please God in all it does; to love him with all its powers, and its neighbour as itself. (p14)
a Dave thought...
Last night I attended the Surrender Conference launch at Mitcham Baptist Church. Father Richard Rohr was the guest speaker and spoke about how Christianity must be more than just your stance on abortion and gay marriage. The gospel must be more about lifestyle than belief. Prayer is moving to a different state of mind not dualistic but contemplative.

Since it first ran it in 2004, the mission of SURRENDER has been to invite, inspire and inform an emerging generation to respond to the radical call of Jesus. The name SURRENDER is an identity that invites a joining with the Jesus who pours out his life in loving the lost and least. As followers of this Jesus today we must be his hands and feet in a hurting world, giving a voice to God’s call to be good news to the poor. If you are interested in attending the conference it will be held in Melbourne at Belgrave Heights March 5-8.

Just a thought.
