As an ex-tradie, I love my tools. I can appreciate a well- built piece of equipment designed to help me in my task. Even the most simple of tools is a pleasure to work with when it helps you do the job well.
Tools aren't designed to be hung over the mantlepiece, they're designed to be used. This week we see that the church has a major piece of equipment designed to help it in its task of witnessing Jesus to the world. Maybe last week after hearing of our commission to witness Jesus, you felt a little under-equipped - this week should change that.
