I thoroughly enjoyed most of the discussion at our monthly elders meeting last night. I loved hearing all express their hunger for using scripture more in the application of our agenda items. I was inspired by Rick Allen-Jordan's devotional on peace and the quote he left us with from Archbishop Oscar Romeo of El Salvador shortly before he was assasinated in 1980.
"We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work… We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete but it is a beginning."
