The Real Deal

a Biblical thought...
"You've no idea how much I have looked forward to eating this Passover meal with you before I enter my time of suffering. It's the last one I'll eat until we all eat it together in the kingdom of God." (Luke 22:15-16)

a Book thought...
There is no way the Church of the future can be timid. The future calls for courage. (p95 Needham)
a Dave thought...
This morning at our 11am service at Box Hill the Reverend Barry Sutton preached. He began with the statement "it is great to be with the Salvos this morning you people are the real deal, there are no cardboard cut-outs here!"
Well it is great to be part of an organisation that everyone respects so much, but sometimes I think it wouldn't be bad to send a cardboard cut-out on Sunday morning and be elsewhere in the community. You see so many of us are so comfortable attending every week to the same service at the same time in the same building that it would be good like Rudd to get out where the people are and be Jesus in our local surrounds.

Just a thought.
