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."
