Avoid Too Much Glue

Too much glue won’t stick, and too many words won’t either. –Unknown Author.

When I was 14 I was building a model of a Messerschmidt BF109 German fighter. Everything was fine until I got to the cockpit. I applied too much glue and the parts would ‘slip’ when I put them together. Frustrated, I reached for super-glue. It always did the trick. well I was right. It did the job quick and soon enough I was marveling at my newly completed model.

That’s when I realized that I’d glued my right index finger to my right middle finger. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t separate them. I panicked. I pulled on my fingers but no matter what I did they wouldn’t separate. I went into the bathroom and scrubbed the crap out of my hands and still nothing. After running about the apartment trying various solvents and hot water remedies I realized I had to resort to drastic means. I spotted an X-Acto knife and carefully cut my fingers apart with little loss of blood.

The fact is that the right glue is good. But too much of it and it won’t stick. (The same with words by the way.) So I am committing to always using just the right amount of glue to get the job done.

Why Glue?

Glue: (1) a hard, impure, protein gelatin, obtained by boiling skins, hoofs, and other animal substances in water, that when melted or diluted is a strong adhesive. (2) any of various solutions or preparations of this substance, used as an adhesive any of various other solutions or preparations that can be used as adhesives.

Glue keeps things together. It makes stuff work. It brings together things that may not normally be put together and binds them. It gets in the all nooks and crannies and fills it up to ensure that whatever you are trying to put together stays that way.

That’s why its really cool to be launching Mission Glue.

I am a business guy and a Church planter.  Glued together.

It’s my hope that to start things off here, we have a healthy discussion of the challenges, the needs and most of all the solutions to help ‘The Church’ plant healthy and organized churches.

Stay tuned.
