Tactics & Strategy
Pope Francis says: “We need to find and express a new way of being church”. This week we read the story of David and Goliath. David, weak and powerless defeated the mighty man of war. He prayed and trusted God. But he also used new tactics. The Pope is telling us that our present strategy and tactics “for being church” are not fit for purpose. Strict regulation, power and control are for secular dictators – the Goliaths – not for a caring family of families. You – the Lay People - like David, have both to pray and then find the way to direct your prayer to help solve the global problems. Certainly not by authoritarian exercise of power and control. You are doing it to some extent. Can we start some discussions? There are already two good starts, and the Journey of Faith is another.
