Wow, Brother Maynard expressed so perfectly something that I alluded to in a post a couple of days ago regarding our old church. There were so many wasted gifts there because the leadership didn't want to give up the keys to anything. In fact, I believe that the leadership didn't really want anyone to develop their gifts too much, because if they did, then those in leadership wouldn't be able to control every detail and every person, and in fact might even have to give up the veneration and recognition for a well-run fruitful ministry etc. to some mere layperson. It makes me sad. Imagine what would happen to the church, and the world, if EVERYONE was encouraged and guided to use their gifts to their full potential.

I like the quote from Brother Maynard on chaotic expressions. I think we do put structures in place for purposes of control. It seems however, that God's work tends to emerge from places uncontrolled... from people you least expect.
