    och, come on, reach out to the we fella, at least give ‘im a soft landing

  2. Ben says:

    Leave him hanging. I am sure he has unconfessed sin in his life. You wouldn’t want to interfere with the Almighty’s trial.

  3. Pat says:

    Ouch :-(
    Thanks jon for the salutary reminder

  4. Goodfield says:

    Maybe there a trampoline just out of view! :-)

    spot on!!! keep them coming…

    had a problem in a church storing something. 6 months later, following many discussions at the highest levels, i was told what the solution was to resolve the problem and what i was to do…problem was by that time it was no longer a problem…sound like a church you know???

    the sort of important things we seem to discuss are how many christmas trees to get and the ongoing saga of the disabled persons’ ramp and how to fund it ( I should add that we do have a ramp, but it leads to the back door)

    God that’s awful.

  8. Steve Martin says:

    When someone is hanging on for dear life…it’s the task of the Christian to go up and step on their hand, or pry their fingers loose.

    So that they might give up any notion that it will all work out fine in this life.

  9. Kim says:

    If we intervened, we might get in the way of the lesson the Lord was teaching him by leaving him there :-)

    Steve Martin: Why? Is that what Jesus would do?

  11. rithompson says:

    What does this one mean? Is it that we are so wrapped up in our own world, that we don’t notice when a friend or family member is crumbling before us through depression, financial stress or drug abuse?

  12. Laura says:

    Maybe it’s the 500th time he’s gotten himself into the same mess. If we help him get down off the ledge, he’ll just walk back around the same old way and fall off again. Yep…best just leave him there till he learns his lesson.

    I have to say that I’m pretty impressed! Supporting his weight on the fingers of one hand… For a month… Keep him there for a while longer, Jon and we could get him into the Guinness book of Records!

    och, I remember that sense of feeling ‘you just have to wait, we managing a really important crisis just now’, I got myself traumatised and bewildered by the subsequent suicidal feelings after my relationship with my Mum broke down, the church ministry team left me feeling I really wasn’t very important. sadly my vow to make sure I would be there for others has been harder to fulfil!
