a Biblical thought...
Now in those days the advice Ahithophel gave was like that of one who inquires of God. That was how both David and Absalom regarded all of Ahithophel's advice. (2 Sam 16:23)

a Book thought...
For Salvationists the mercy seat symbolises God's unremitting call to his people to meet with him. It is a reminder. It is an opportunity. It is a privilege. (p230
a Dave thought...
I recently received these stats from Rob Isaachsen and the Transforming Melbourne Team...

3,600,00 people live in Melbourne
300,000 at church weekly - 150,000 of these attend Catholic Churches
65,000 of all attenders are aged over 75 (163,000 are over 55)
68,000 church attenders are under 34 years!!
Churches report about 5,000 come to faith each year
There is a net loss of 4,800 from the church each year

As the church continues to struggle to stay relevant and engage people it brings me back to a wise saying I learnt many years ago: "Stupidity is doing the same things and expecting different results."

Just a thought.
