    I thought Christ was looking for good and faithful servants?

    But my dog does what she wants anyway

    Jee I didn’t want to think my dog was unhappy. Wolves are pretty unhappy.

  • BW

    The dog in the cartoon looks pretty happy and content.

    Please pray for a friend of mine named Lou. He is a wonderful people loving pastor in Illinois. He has tumors that have metastasised in his brain. It seems like this came out of nowhere. I talked to Lou just last week and he had no idea. Thx.

    VanPastor: done. May our Lord Jesus intervene.

    One friend of mine in Hawaii was counseled that she would die from her strong cancer, she has been cancer free over 5 years.

    My brother in law had an unusual stage 3 cancer removed; survival rate is 1% at 5 years; and today, he is part of that 1% at 5.5 years.

    In both cases above, they are believers and we (and others) prayed for them. Our God had mercy on them; though we lost one other person to cancer just last year. Nonetheless, we still trust our Father hears every prayer and petition.

    Much love in Christ always and unconditionally; Caryn

    Steve: I wonder who is holding that leash?

    What if the ‘master’ is the church leadership?

    What if the ‘master’ is the driving need for the sacraments?

    What if the ‘master’ is we have no identity outside of being part of our denomination?

    When Jesus used the term ‘master’ in some of His parables, He spoke about ‘the master being gone for a long season’. The ‘servants’ were placed independently in charge of the master’s estate. Some of the servants even became ‘drunk’ and began ‘to beat their fellow servants’.

    I offer that we need to sense when we are ‘leashed’ to leadership, dogma, and/or denomination, and sense when we have lost the independence needed to make good decisions for our master ‘that is on a long journey’. That sense of independence allows us to debate our leadership, dogma, and/or denomination – so that we are certain the ‘masters estate’ is handled according to His principles.

    That sense of independence also allows us to recognize when a leader is ‘drunk’ (with power or with frustration) and to ensure that no ‘fellow servant’ is ‘beaten’.

    Your thoughts?

    Much love in Christ always and unconditionally; Caryn

    OMG this is too funny LOL! Our household consists of two cats and a dog. The dog and the male cat are very loving and affectionate. The female cat will interact with us on her terms. She always looks at the other two with disgust b/c she can’t understand why they would listen to us silly humans.
