School Holiday Program

a Biblical thought...
Never again will there be any night. No one will need lamplight or sunlight. The shining of God, the Master, is all the light anyone needs. And they will rule with him age after age after age. (Rev 22:5)

a Book thought...
It is our turn to rediscover the beautiful, dangerous, compelling idea that a group of people, surrendered to God and to each other, really can change the world. (p164 Bell)
a Dave thought...
Envoy Graeme Mawson has done a great job getting a School Holiday Program off the ground at Healesville. With 30 children attending from the local community everyday this week it is certainly a fun place to be. It is also encouraging to see Ringwood get behind the idea and headed up by Luke Baker bring out seven youth leaders to help run the weeks activities.
I was asked to go and do some leadership training with them and in particular look at their personality profiles. As I took them through a Myers-Briggs type of assessment and drank coffee together we began to realise how uniquely God made us all. In this small group we had opposite ends of the spectrum from an ISTJ to an ENFP and soon realised that we all need to allow each other to lead in our own unique way. What all these young leaders have in common though is their love for God and their willingness to commit to a week of serving others. Well done guys!

Just a thought.
