This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

The Buffalo Win--Against All Odds!

Tonight at our Drama Ministry Team meeting, we were chatting about that hysterically funny "Weiner Poopie" YouTube video I posted a couple weeks ago.  One of the team members mentioned an amazing clip about a herd of water buffalo he'd seen that made a huge impression on him.  When I got home I checked it out.  He was absolutely right.  

The video shows a group of buffalo accidentally wandering into the turf of a tribe of lions.  The lions attacked a young buffalo and settled down for a nice lunch.  Well, the other members of the herd had other ideas.  They stepped up and saved the young animal.  Click here to see this incredible film (Battle At Kruger - about 8 minutes).  Be sure to stay with it, watch it unfold.

It's like a little "parable of nature" because it totally demonstrates so many of those New Testament "one another" verses:  
  • accept one another;
  • be devoted to one another;
  • honor one another; 
  • bear one another's burdens; 
  • be compassionate to one another;
  • love one another.
A great analogy of the church that "gets it."  The thought that came to mind:  "The gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

It's an unbelievable little clip.
