Even in the book of Acts (6:1), smack bang in amongst the miracles, the marvels, the mission, and the multitudes converting: the worst ministry to fail (the mercy ministry) breaks down for the worst reason (racial division). The PR team didn’t sleep well that night.
I’m grateful that they didn’t call a meeting when this became clear, shrug their shoulders and say, ‘guess we failed guys, movement over, back to the fishing’.
They acknowledged the errors, put in the work to fix them, moved forward and kept it as part of the story.
The word of God, of course, multiplied all the while.
