Boundless Salvation

a Biblical thought...
Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. (Eph 2:3-4)

a Book thought...
It is crucial that the worship team be intergenerational. The leaders who are seen on the platform influence the people who will attend the service. (p221 McIntosh)
a Dave thought...
Last night was the launch of the Boundless Salvation DVD series. After 10 years of discussions and working parties it is great to see the final product. I am one who loves to explore the history and theology of our movement and this 4 disc series complete with workbook is a great tool for us all to use.

As INSANE: the stories of crazy salvos who changed the world (Munn & Collinson), also got some airtime last night, it hit me once again how important it is for us to explore our past in depth. For me it wasn’t until I heard John Cleary and the stories of our past that the present began to make sense. Why God shaped us as international missional movement that is focused on the marginalized all starts to fall in place when we absorb the heart of who we were. But moreso what interests me now is using the wisdom and purposefulness of the past to shape the future. So as it has been said before lets: cherish the past, adorn the present but most of all construct for the future.

Just a thought.
