The Overflow

Each morning in my work e-mail, I receive an "e-Spiration" from Franciscan University of Steubenville Conferences.

The latest:

“We are not meant to be channels, just moving things from here to there, even good things that we have heard or learned. We are designed to be reservoirs, filled to capacity with the very life of God, even overflowing. It is the overflow that becomes our ministry.”

- Jim Beckman, from here

At the edge of cheesy. But, an interesting way to think of how we can carry out ministry.

The quote made me think of Mike as he begins his adventure in campus ministry.

The image above is from here.

I haven't been here lately and I have much to catch up on. And no time.

This is beautiful!
