Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Mission Trip Diaries

I've decided for a variety of reasons to post my mission trip diaries from my two trips to Uganda on this blog.  Previosuly they were just on my church's missions blog (for which I was the major editor / contributer).  But I'd like to have a record on this blog too.

So, starting tomorrow, one entry will come out a day for a while.  I may intersperse these posts with the occasional other post, as I work out a few different things in my head.  I've not posted much as I've been working through some issues in relation to a variety of issues including (but not limited to) boys, missions, where I want to go with my life, the position that my church has on a vareity of issues, the supremacy of Scripture, the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church and the believer, and signs and wonders.

Enjoy the mission trip diaries!
