Hat tip to Stephen Court for the following:
CSM is an important local officer position. We have two people filling it in our corps.
CSM Phil Wall (an LO at a corps in UK) was heard recently to say, on accountability, “If you don’t master yourself, your self will master you.”
On the same subject, the quotable CSM continued, “leadership is lonely. Isolation is a choice.”
He quoted John Cassian that, “We worship a God who is always lapping at the shores of our lives.”
And, finally, CSM Phil Wall said, “If all the leaders of The Salvation Army determined to invest 25% more time in making friends with people who don’t know Jesus it would transform The Army in six months.”
Thank the Lord for CSMs (and Assistants ;o) )
