|2011 Champion Quiz Team "CLAY"|
Aaron is a former Bible quizzer. He and I laughed as we spoke about his national's teams, ahem, 17 or so years ago. A now-NFL player (coached by Ed Thomas...as were three other NFL players) was on that team...all I remember is how BIG they were!
After all these years of being involved, and being around several men and women who have been invovled almost as many years as I...this quote that came to my in-box this early morning resonates:
“In Jesus’ simple command to ‘make disciples,’ he has invited every one of his followers to share the life of Christ with others in a sacrificial, intentional, global effort to multiply the gospel of Christ through others. He never intended to limit this invitation to the most effective communicators, the most brilliant organizers, or the most talented leaders and artists — all the allegedly right people that you and I are prone to exalt in the church. Instead, the Spirit of God has empowered every follower of Christ to accomplish the purpose of God for the glory of God in the world. This includes the so-called wrong people: those who are least effective, least brilliant, or least talented in the church.
Building the right church, then, is dependent on using all the wrong people.”— David Platt
