Rocket Park

a Biblical thought...
My lord the king is like an angel of God; so do whatever pleases you. All my grandfather's descendants deserved nothing but death from my lord the king, but you gave your servant a place among those who eat at your table. (2 Sam 19:28)

a Book thought...
Underlying the Call to celebrate Christ's real presence at all our meals and in all our meetings is the belief that his presence can be enjoyed anywhere, at any time, by anyone. (p26)
a Dave thought...
It has now been 2 months since the Glenferrie Outreach began, and after weekly gatherings indoors where we have been praying and reading God's word it was time to move outdoors. So last night 21 of us met at the rocket park in Hawthorn for a BBQ followed by some prayer and sharing. It was great just to be able to meet in such a vibrant community space, as families, students, and other locals walked past, played on the playground or just stopped for a chat. We had some great conversations and I'm sure there is still no better place for the Salvos to gather than outdoors. The Salvation Army began in Australia in a park in Adelaide back on September 5 in 1880 and I believe it is still the best place to go public 128 years later.

Just a thought.
