Roman Ezekiel

a Jesus thought...
Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." (John 4:21-24)

a Godly thought...
God certainly is "our glorious one, who lifts up our heads." (p108 Lucas)

a leading thought...
Improving knowledge worker productivity is the most important task of the century. Yet we have few measures or management interventions to make such improvement possible. Most organizations simply hire smart people, and leave them alone. (Tom Davenport)

a Dave thought...
Last night I had the privilege to conduct the dedication of Roman Ezekiel Young at the 6pm service at Box Hill. As part of the ceremony I read the following words...

I remind you that you are not just witnesses to this ceremony, but participants in it. Acknowledging this, will you encourage and support Nath and Sharon as they endeavour to nurture Roman in the ways and teachings of Jesus Christ?
In your personal contacts with Roman, will you establish a relationship that is based on love, acceptance, understanding, encouragement, forgiveness and kindness?
As you entered church today you were given a photo of Roman. Nath and Sharon would like you to take this photo and put it somewhere you may see it from time to time (Bible, glove box, under the kitchen sink!) and when you do see it, say a prayer for Roman.

It is great that as part of the dedication that we ask the church as a whole to support the family and the child. It was an especially nice touch last night that Nath & sharon handed out photos so we could all feel even more connected to this beautiful boy.

Just a thought.
