Submit to your leader ...

unless her name is Liz.

Not my best attempt at leading bible study last night in Zac's. We were looking at the passage in 1 Peter about submitting to rulers. There were good points to be made but I didn't put them over very well. As a result:
a) I sort of suggested that the Holocaust was God's idea;
and b) Kay isn't speaking to me (not because of a).

I did get a clap though - when I yelled, 'SHUT UP!!!!'

It was ironic that a passage about submitting to rulers/leaders made me realise again my failings in that area. But at least preparing for the study - I can't say 'taught' because that implies I have finally learned a lesson - reminded me of the ideal that is required of Christians: to be like Jesus and demonstrate God through our actions.

It's flipping hard though! Especially when God (disciplines) subtly teaches us lessons.

P.S. Lying in bed this morning I composed a much more articulate and lengthy post covering all sorts of related themes - but this is all I can manage right now.
