I’m sure you’ll be totally deaf to the language in the video above. Sometimes certain vocabulary is needed because of what’s presented.
When I listened to this video making breakfast for myself and feeding Shadow-dog and Laudy-dog, and doing up other and sundry multi-tasking, and then repeatedly went through the video, again and again, for another week… a horrific darkness, demonic even – to speak the truth of the evil presented – weighed me down, crushing, really. Sooo… dark…
We’ve all seen it before… in the wounds of Christ Jesus… Only the weight of the glory of His wounds crushes the darkness that would otherwise drag us down. It’s to be personal, very personal. With Jesus, everything is possible.
Seen on our church door, a statement about feeling at home, and about saying Thank You to Jesus. There’s a story in the video about hand-prints of the rescued.
I mentioned to Father Gordon that I’m thinking about doing some logistics to help this crowd, and his immediate reaction was: “Just don’t shoot anybody, Father George; that’s for others, for the police!”
That made me laugh out loud. If you dare listen to that video, he will early on recount the reaction of other Tier 1 operators when he, Glen Devitt, asked them to help out. They instantly asked in return: “Can we shoot them?” The answer was no, that they had to stay within the parameters of being on this side of the law, but that the law enforcement officers who would be assisting with arrests would be quite capable.
UPDATE: So, I mentioned the Sentinel Foundation to an Intel guy of 28 years (Central America). The first thing he asked was how operators could somehow not pull the trigger. And so it went with others. Yep. Meanwhile, Monica’s comment in the combox has me thinking…
