Seen those “What I actually do.” pictures rolling around the internet?
I saw one for “Corps Officers”, poached it and adapted it to an Aussie audience and with better graphics. It went “viral” apparently. 167 likes, 60 shares and 28 comments in 22 hours. Apparently that’s impressive in facebook land.
The discussion started though – even though it was intended as “humorous” – what is Corps Officership really like? Am I called to a life of holiness and service, yet bound by an inevitable pile of paperwork and bureaucracy?
I enjoyed that people were honestly thinking about the role of a Corps Officer. Apologetic if the humorous angle was discouraging in any way. But, excited that something humorous makes us ask questions!
So, anyway – I attempted a followup. I’ve since realised that I forgot evangelism and a bunch of other things! But, the most important thing is that in the beginning and in the end, we’re pointing to Jesus.
Please comment – add and subtract as you so desire. What is it that we really do? 🙂
