Not fit for consumption...

Have you ever had high hopes for someone, or some event, and been disappointed that your expectation was not met?  I have certainly experienced this a few times in my life.  Sometimes I have placed too much hope in a person, and sometimes it has been an institution - every indicator points to the fact that things will go well, and for some reason they simply don't turn out as expected... Do you know the feeling?

Today I recorded the final episode in a series of broadcast I did for my radio program 'The Ministry and Me' on radio pulpit - for the past number of weeks we have been looking at the various Churches in the book of Revelation (especially Revelation 2 and 3) and seeing what we can learn for our own lives.  The intention of the program is to help each one of us to realise that we are surrounded by endless opportunities and possibilities!  Sadly, we are easily distracted by memories of the past or hopes for the future - and in this distraction we miss the opportunity of 'living in the present moment'.

Today's program looks at the last of the 7 Churches, the Church of Laodicea.  This was the only one of the seven Churches that Jesus said nothing good about!  Amazingly, this was the wealthiest, most industrious, and most resourced city of those mentioned in Revelation 2 and 3.  Somehow the Church missed their mark (first by not realising their purpose, second by placing their worth in things that weren't eternally important, and finally by not cultivating an intimate and deep relationship with Christ).
