Pressing the RESET BUTTON

In order to arrive at what you are not,
You must go through the way in which you are not.

T.S. Eliot

"Youth Ministry" has pressed the RESET BUTTON
"My Life" has pressed the RESET BUTTON
There is something about going back to the beginning and with the history of "if only" carrying around the cervix of your brain. The feeling is

All this listed above besides the overage young people leading them will be formulated together with the adults real soon. The total number of young people actually attending is supposedly 60+ a fair drop from 80. We are combining together with adults but still having the youth cell groups, we are basically going back to the fundamentals or rather bare essentials of a youth ministry. It is really saddening but in order to give more vibrancy to a pheonix, it must die before rising from ashes, just like Jesus making everything NEW in HIS world.

What kingdom perspective must we adopt for it to work in the coming months...only time and decisions will tell. All is done in the past serve only as reminders of what can do and not do. We ought to be wiser and not say let's forget about it, unless what Danny says come to pass.

Quote Danny "Perhaps we aren't destined to be a great youth ministry"

Theatre. A familarity that breeds a communion that is so strong, it seems attached to my very soul which God packaged it up together with me before the foundations for time. For a season it was flourishing and I gave it all up to pursue a certain passion that closes its doors on me. Not my fault but not my timing perhaps. If I say I am not disappointed I am lying. The one thing I am good at and I turn my back on it. David uses what he knows and not what people put on him.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Ian is going back to what he turned his back on. On the wings that God has placed on his talent to bring him the freedom of creativity that has no bounds. He is to use it and grow it. Though it may not start out that glamourously, however the humility in bred with him at the start of this journey is strong within the spine of his whole being. God I am ready for the arts, allow me to explode only to serve You and allow others to see the magnitude of favor You have put in me.

For now, I am just getting to know that familarity and it was good. Getting better and better each time. I have pressed the reset button but I know what it will bring definitely. I will sweep the floors of the stage I will act in.

Ian will perform end April 07 in a small role in NOTHING by Cake Theatrical Productions and also in June 07 for ARTSFEST "1000 Different Things"
