ANNIE THE BISHOP


The resident "bishop" in our house is Annie the wonder-dog. At one point she was a 65-pound running machine. At age 92 (in dog years) her spine has so much arthritis she needs twice the normal human dose of prednisone just to walk. She is not healthy; she cannot do what she was born to do.


In the same way, unhealthy churches cannot do the mission of God. If the church is to reclaim its spiritual health we have got to shed the arthritic view of what we want to do with "our" possessions, time and talent. We must adopt a Biblical stewardship that bows before the throne and says "God use me and whatever you’ve placed in my hands for your own glory; I surrender all!"
