Jack’s Winning Words 7/6/15
“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would solve most of the world’s problems.”  (Gandhi)  Mike Rowe’s TV show, “Dirty Jobs,” explores work that we’d just as soon let others do…ski-lift mechanic, shark repellent tester, road kill collector.  The show’s theme song, “We Care A Lot,” is a tribute to people who care.  Gandhi did what he did, because he cared.  This world is a better place, because of people like that.    ;-)  Jack

 FROM TARMART REV:  ... as well, Mother Teresa... one of earlier missionaries in Calcutta was a Mark and Hulda Buntain...I understand they were friends of hers as well.====JACK:  There are doers who don't receive the headlines that Teresa and Gandhi have gotten, but none of them are in the business of caring because of headlines.====REV: Yes, sir...Jack and Paul would most likely be two of those...however, my father many years ago and earlier on in ministry took me to a "faith evangelist" conducting services in our hometown armory who called me out and prophesied over me that God had big things in store for me-- prosperity, fame and abundance of sorts...I never lost any sleep over waiting for its arrival... I'm sure it coming though--just around the corner!!====JACK:  Paul got headlines in the Bible, but not Jack.

FROM HONEST JOHN:  At POG I shoveled snow, mowed the grass, plunged the toilets, shingled the roof, etc, etc.   got criticized by a synod official for doing those things but our church grew and a lot of churches where the pastor was more dignified declined.   Dignity isn't perhaps so important. ====JACK:  As there were differences between the disciples of Jesus, there are differences between ministry styles.  I happen to buy into your style, and it worked for me, too. 

FROM JB IN SCS:  Great minds think alike!====JACK:  Our carrier happened to deliver the Wall Street Journal today by mistake.  It was interesting to get "a different slant" on the day's news.  I've found that "caring" is not necessarily limited by ideology.
