The Mission

Just read "The Mission," and I have to say, I'm thrilled with the direction the Family is taking. Thrilled. In some ways, having been in a service home for a long time, I feel like I'm on the sidelines waving goodbye to all the missionaries being sent off to win the world, but it's okay, because I like knowing that at least SOMEONE is out there doing the job. I'm so excited to give this new GN to Active Members, and I'm so excited that everyone in the Family is going to read it in and go "okay, I'll try this."
I know that in the not-so-distant future I'll be able to introduce sheep to other Family members and not be paranoid that their standard is not a good sample.
I know that soon there won't be that loneliness, discouragement, and self-righteousness, because everyone will be struggling harder than I am, and I will look up to them and look down at myself and think "Florence, you gotta up your game. These people are fighting for Jesus, there ain't no more self-pity to be had." And I will grab someone's hand and feel confident that they will pull me in the right direction.
"The Mission," people. Read it and pump some iron.
