Are We Ready To Resume Our Mission?

What Must I/We Do To Sail Again?

  • Let God reorient you. (Find out “where you are”)
  • Help collect firewood (be a part of the solution)
  • Shake the viper(s) off your hand (Don’t panic)
  • Endure false negative criticism (You know it is a lie)
  • Ignore ridiculously exaggerated praise (It is temporary)
  • Practice therapeutic ministry (Your ministry is needed)
  • Prepare to sail again (Stay on mission … Finish well)
