Pondering the state of our nation and its churches this a.m...based on our profession, there should be a correlation!
It seems that once again, as in 2016, I am hearing so much talk about the lesser of two evils, policy over personality, etc. as we attempt to lessen the sting of a failing political system. God help us if this continues.
Why not begin to build a pipeline of qualified individuals, who enter into service at the local level, but have the character, restraint and wisdom needed for matriculation up the ranks toward national leadership.
The local is where the Body of Christ can make a difference, "on Earth as it is in heaven!"
Just a thought.
