Humble Pie, Anyone?

Humble Pie, Anyone?

Jul 30, 08 • NewsNo Comments

I’m not sure if this happens to you, but I find that I pick up life’s menu daily to find that the dessert listing always contains the option, Humble Pie. I have learned that voluntary selection of this option is a rather wise choice that keeps me in harmony with God and also with others. However, there seem to be seasons where I pick up life’s menu and find that all the entrées have been scratched through and someone has scribbled humble pie in the place of many much more desirable options. Unfortunately, I occasionally recognize that handwriting as my own. In other seasons, I feel that God is asking me to consume more humble pie than I feel any one person should be required to eat – as if I am being force-fed humble pie for the purpose of transforming me into the image of the One who was perfect in humility. But I typically find that the further I stretch myself and the busier my calendar becomes – I seem to eat the dreaded stuff more frequently and in larger quantities than I can stand.

Such was the case this week. If you received the apparently unedited version of the GCPN Communiqué that was sent out from the GCPN office a few days ago, I hope that you did not find wading through the swamp of misspellings and poor use of punctuation a total loss. Perhaps you could print this version of the Communiqué and take it with you on your next international flight as a replacement for your Sudoku puzzle book. However, if you are maintaining a tally sheet of errors – you may want to take plenty of paper along.

The truth is – buried in all of the grammatical disaster of that Communiqué were three great opportunities you will want to consider. Please click on the links below to explore these training options:

I pray that your summer has been full of Kingdom success. Enjoy the watermelon and ice cream… and if you’ve never tried it you might want to sample a small taste of the Humble Pie.

Together in the Kingdom.

Our Services


Missional maturity for the local church is a process. We help churches implement cross-cultural service training, strategy development, and network with other churches for peer-to-peer mentoring.


Yes, you can! Churches can send their workers to the mission field by utilizing our array of services including financial management and accounting services, contracting, crisis management, logistics, and member care. 


Recognizing the interconnected nature of issues such as poverty, disease, and danger, we work with extremely vulnerable communities to implement responsible solutions that holistically address their needs and help them overcome disasters.

We want to join you in taking the whole Gospel to the whole world!
