a Biblical thought...
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. (Luke 8:16)

a Book thought...
If we’re doing something truly important it may take more than one person to really pull off the whole vision. (p185 Logan & Miller)
a Dave thought...
Commissioning yesterday was a significant day for the Salvation Army in this territory. As over 1000 attended the afternoon gathering I sense that many of us are believing in the power of the large gathering once again. Somehow ever since the early nineties many Aussie Salvos became cynical about events such as congress and we seemed to lose momentum and numbers dropped, and therefore congress became a sometimes event rather than an annual event. This was a reflection of how many were believing that their individual corps were far more important and relevant than the large gathering. But yesterday was testament that the soldiery is once again believing that meeting as a united front is relevant and meaningful especially to those who have recently been enrolled. As a result of our confidence being restored as a movement and the fact that our understanding of an Army has grown, I have no doubt so to will our numbers grow with new soldiers and officers over these next few years.

Just a thought.
