Siamese Twins

a Biblical thought...
Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God's Law and Prophets and this is what you get. (Matt 7:12)

a Book thought...
When you see a colleague whose job seems easy, you may in fact be witnessing a champion at play. (p59 MacKenzie)
a Dave thought...
Major Brendan Nottle is an amazing man and again spoke at ACC last night with incredible conviction last night as he encouraged us all to get out of the pews and GO. He used a quote which has probably been used at every ACC over the last eight years but one that continues to disturb me. William Booth said, the Army’s evangelism and social welfare ‘are Siamese twins; to kill one is to slay them both’. It makes so much sense to put Faith and Social Justice together but in reality for our organisation it is hard work. With THQ and now DHQ divided into social program and corps program, and funding divided into the evangelical and social funds, it seems a genius idea that William instigated back in the 1800's needs to be lived out once again. If we could somehow merge departments and then the impossible -merge accounts then we would be close to breeding Siamese Twins once again.

Just a thought.
