Rabbits & Elephants

a Biblical thought...
This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty. (Zechariah 4:6)

a Book thought...
Every child is different, and good fathering means that we need to understand the personalities and life experiences of each of our children. This will let us work out what their needs are and what is the best way to respond to them. (p167)
a Dave thought...
If you put two elephants in a room together and close the door, in 22 months you may get one baby elephant. But two rabbits together for the same amount of time will result in thousands of baby rabbits! In The Rabbit and the Elephant, “micro church” planters Tony and Felicity Dale use the “rabbit” illustration to show the pace at which the Christian faith can (and should) be growing—through evangelism that is explosive and transformational. The Rabbit and the Elephant contains the key to 21st century evangelism—taking the gospel to where the pain and the people are.
Documents how “church” across the world is changing from being event-based to life and relationship-based.
Shows how small and simple churches can multiply rapidly.
Shows how to incorporate spiritual growth and outreach into every aspect of our lives.
Includes relevant research on churchgoing habits and impact gathered by the Barna Group.

Just a thought.
