Over on "In a Godward Direction, Tobias has written a new short and very helpful post, Hammers and Nails.
"The Spirit calls us to sit lightly in our offices and our programs, to keep our eyes open to the world around us. Parishes, dioceses and even national churches can be paralyzed into inaction when they become so set on filling offices that they miss the crying needs, and the Holy Spirit’s abounding grace providing ministries emerging in their midst."
Just go read it. Think about it. Comment there or here.
