a Biblical thought...
We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That's to prevent anyone from confusing God's incomparable power with us. (2 Cor 4:7)

a Book thought...
This is the good news - of justice, beauty and above all Jesus - that the church is called upon to live and to speak, to bring into reality, in each place and each generation. (p244 Wright)
a Dave thought...
State Youth Games is an awesome youth event held in Warragul on the long weekend in June every year. Even though it is mostly cold and wet, the few thousand who participate annually represent up to 100 church youth groups from around Victoria have heaps of fun. The weekend consists of sleeping in tents on a massive livestock park, night rallies in a huge shed, and playing mainly team sports including pool volleyball, ultimate Frisbee and mixed netball.

The picture above is the Box Hill ultimate Frisbee team wearing their freshly designed t-shirts. If you look closely it says Jesus is my team captain above a picture of Buddy Jesus with a small Red Shield on his heart. It was great to see other corps represented as well including Waverley, Ringwood, Preston, Resi, 614, and Bendigo. I rank this event so highly because we often don't cater well for teenage boys at church, so to have an event that is based outdoors around sport and Jesus is a great mix and works tremendously.

Just a thought.

I love SYG. A phenonmenal event if you ask me. And while this year, I hurt more than I have ever before, I can't deny that I had a great weekend.
I must also add, what a fine looking ultimate frisbee team!
