Ministry Appreciation Dinner

a Biblical thought...
Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him. (Luke 4:14-15)

a Book thought...
Developing others is a multistage process. It's time intensive and it's relationship intensive. There are no shortcuts. (p159 Logan & Miller)
a Dave thought...
Last night I was invited to the Ministry Appreciation Dinner at the Box Hill Corps. This is a night when everyone who has served others through the year in roles from leading small groups to cooking meals are thanked and appreciated by the corps leadership. The meal was great, and fine words were exchanged but most of all it was a unifying occasion. As Box Hill is so diverse with over 700 different people through its doors each week via Cafe Salvo, Companion Club, the Korean corps and five Sunday congregations it was just a great chance to reflect. So to the 100 or so people who were present last night and all the others who also make this corps run smoothly from week to week - well done.

Just a thought.
