Well, apologies for the rather long break from blogsphere. No excuses really other than to say its been an interesting few weeks on many fronts.
One of those weeks that you think you’d be better of climbing back into the trench but where you know that doing that won’t win the war…u just have to stand up and be shot at! But the thing is,the squabbles are going on in the trench between folks who think that all that exists is the trench and seem to have very little interest on what’s going on in the battle field. And every time we and our local officers have to sort out fighting within the trenches, our attention is moved away from the real battle.
However, I’m not sure I’d be any happier if things were just ticking along. Stuff that is goin on is merely a representation of the fact that we are moving on and change isn’t easy for anyone. It will never be fast enough for some and it will never be slow enough for others. There are a thousand witty quotes that could be uttered to champion the need for change but none of them say as much as the fact that we need to be in a place where we’re harvesting souls for the Kingdom.
It really ticks me off that we’re seeing so few saved. Admittedly, were seeing some be more renewed and sharpened for the war, and thats a good sign…but where are the lost. To put it bluntly, we’re not cutting it at the moment but what will it take for that to happen?
