Roots 2006 – Metamorphosis

Just caught the timetable for Roots over at Roots Online and its looking like a good weekend…what with seminars on Primitive Salvationism, Signs and Wonders, the power of the Holy Spirit, Cell Church and the like as well as the return of Major Chick Yuill’s Bible Studies and Stephen Court and Danielle Strickland on the speaking list!! I’m looking forward to it already!

Interested too in the launch of the ‘Deeper Read Book Club’ – a project intended to help Salvationists go a bit deeper in discipleship. Hooray!

Nice. The Clarks will be there with bells on for our annual spiritual pump up. Happy to be part of the prayer/pastoral team this year too. Here’s praying for some good opportunities for ministry.

  1. HOLY SPIRITAbout 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 1994, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages [England & Australia]. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].Peace Be With YouPatrick
