A Week of Breakups

Thursday, July 20, 2006

NPH has spent the week in the midst of breakups. There is the ongoing threatened breakup of the church in which we serve, with loud gesticulations coming from a renewal group as they gather at this very moment. Yesterday involved us in two breakup conversations, one with a person who said, "I think I know what I need to do," and the other with a person who said, "I don't know why she's doing this" (the two people don't know each other).

The week's soundtrack has been provided by The Submarines, "Peace and Hate," downloaded from the KCRW Today's Top Tune podcast. The song's a gem:

"Yell and shout and kick me out,
and forget what we fought about,
but don't give up--this storm is passing."

and

"Breaking down cannot be cured by breaking up."

I guess we're on the same wavelength. Without reading your post, I commented on the same NWI convention.

Thanks for these comments, and peace to you in your ministry...
