Fusion

a Jesus thought...
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)

a Godly thought...
Sanctification is not a static state but a dynamic growing process anchored within life in the Spirit, with perfect love as its aim. (p127 Webb)

a leading thought...
Having a positive attitude is essential, it not only determines your level of contentment as person, but it also has an impact on how others interact with you. (p90 Maxwell)
a Dave thought...
Last night it was my privilege to share with the Waverley youth at Fusion. As we looked at Micah 6:8 and the command to Act Justly there was an amazing spirit of openness and a real desire to live a Just lifestyle that brings honour to God. During our reflection time many signed the Stop the Traffik petition and read up on the chocolate campaign, with a group of teenage girls making a pact to only eat fairtrade chocolate from this day on!
It has been organisations such as Make Poverty History and the Oaktree Foundation that have promoted Justice in recent years and the Church has somewhat been late to the party. But seeing the young Salvos from Waverley passionate about Justice and being willing to share & educate their friends & family about issues I'm sure is making God proud. So with Danielle Strickland (justsalvos.com) and heaps of young salvos fighting against injustice we may become a real army once again.

Just a thought.

Dave, Thanks for your leadership. You have motivated and inspired my family at least! These kids at Waverley constantly inspire me with their passion and their conviction. They are a little uncertain at the moment with changes that will occur in the new year, as Matt and Clare move to their new appointment. I pray that they will remain unified and focused together.
