A week night Commissiong

a Biblical thought...
'That's what I mean: Risk your life and get more than you ever dreamed of. Play it safe and end up holding the bag. (Luke 19:26)

a Book thought...
It is no accident that in the days of the Army's greatest missionary vitality, the movement was known by all as a joyous group with infectious enthusiasm. (p90 Needham)
a Dave thought...
Last night was a historical occasion as 4 more lieutenants were commissioned to the rank of captain into the Heralds of the Good News session. Greg & Julie Howard, currently serving in Darwin as well as Gen Peterson & Cate Shanks who are at Reservoir all signed the Officers Covenant and received their international certificate of officership. As we all crammed into the small hall at Thornbury it was a reminder that God doesn't really mind what night of the week or how big the occassion is when someone commits to full time service. There was no doubt God was the focus last night and His presence was very real. It was also noted that our session is obviously healthy, demonstrated by the fact that we would be the first session ever to grow after our initial commissiong.

Just a thought.
