Very belatedly, here we continue from Thursday Evening Part 4:
This is where God has called us to minister. Our response is to seek to discern what the Spirit of God is doing and to react to it, to meet the challenges that He is creating. Whatever model of mission I have sought to develop, it is not sectarian. I am reminded from this passage of how these Galilean nationalists came to Jesus to ask "Will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?".
Dr Trevor Morrow after his address
In other words when the Spirit comes in power it's going to be for us and it's going to be wonderful - that's how we think, isn't it? So when the Presbyterian General Assembly meets, or their Boards or Mission Agencies meet, they assume "When the Spirit comes it's going to be for US." Or the Baptists think "It's going to be for US." And the Pentecostalists think "It's going to be for US." That is not what the Spirit of God is doing.
Just over a year ago I went into the Sacristy of the local Catholic Church, St Mary's. We have introduced in Lucan, during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, a pattern whereby we come and bring greetings to each other's churches. That was because I was so unhappy about the idea of exchanging pulpits. I just couldn't do it.
Preaching the Word of God is really important to me. So I suggested, and the local Parish Priest agreed, wouldn't it be wonderful if we just brought greetings before Mass or before Service?
So I went into the Sacristy and met the new Parish Priest, Father Tom. I said "My name is Trevor Morrow, Lucan Presbyterian Church" and he said "I am Father Tom, but I know who you are." And I said "How do you know who I am?". And he said "Do you remember preaching in the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin 20 years ago at a Catholic Youth Rally?"
And I said "Yes I do, Tom." And I remembered it for two reasons, because of what I had preached. I had chosen to preach on "By grace you are saved, through faith, and of that not of yourselves, lest anyone should boast.". It was not a polemical address, trying to show the superiority of a Reformed position over a Roman Catholic position, it was simply a celebration of the amazing grace of God.
I also remember it because it was the only occasion when I received a standing ovation for preaching the Gospel! There were hundreds and hundreds of Catholic students present. "Well," said Tom, "I responded to Jesus Christ that night. And, as a result, I entered the priesthood."
My response to him was "Please don't tell any of my colleagues in the North!"

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to tell someone!

I'm having a look ahead for your next put up, I'll attempt to
get the hang of it!
Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's challenging to get that
"perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance.
I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
Hi, all is going sound here and ofcourse every one is
sharing information, that's genuinely fine, keep up writing.
Not having to pay the cost of a brand new unit is a life
saver for some and allows you to keep your existing unit
in pristine condition. i - Phone 4 is complemented with best i - Phone apps 2010 like improved i -
OS4, gyroscope gaming, best quality 5 MP camera and best call
quality. Some rumors state that Verizon and Apple are teamed up to examine the compatibility
of the i - Phone 4G with Verizon's 4G wireless signals.
Marquees are used in having the any type of actions. The guests are then instructed
to pretend they are on a desert island (their white paper), and are
told that in order to survive they cannot fall off their island (the
paper). Start with two credit cards as well
as build your credit by adding brand new credit cards whenever needed.
It is quite safe to say that for most employees, the working life will
not entail any major disputes.
Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad andd tested to see
if it ccan survive a forty foot drop, jujst so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
