Herd of Deer Jumping Fence, with a twist (herten stakenbergweg elspeet)
Ahhhhh…..this video reminds me of the life of ministry. You encourage folks to break out of old patterns, try something new, “jump over the fence” and boldly go where they haven’t been before. And some agree to try, and they set out, and others follow! And then suddenly, someone yells…”Go back!!! We’ve never gone this way before!!” Thank God for patience and perseverance!
The video is viral; the quote a reflection on it, offered by a colleague. What do you think? Is it that difficult to stay the course in the life of the church when someone “with history” sounds the alarm?
