"Get a move on you 'orrible lot! You've got another three miles of sand to run in, now watch your step! Move it, move it, move it!"
Not quite the exact words I heard, but close enough.
Is it wrong to occasionally wish that churches could be led like an army? More could be achieved in some ways, but doubtless that means that the mistakes would be huger alongside the successes, and I suspect a muddling through, soul by soul, is more what the Lord has in mind for us. In his patience is our salvation.
(NB Ollie was most excited to see them, thought it was great fun. I don't plan to run along with a pack on my back any time soon though.)
