Men, Mules, and Stallions

We prefer the men in our church to be mules. A mule does not act like a jackass and they are able to carry larger loads and endure longer than a horse. They are tamer than a jackass but do not seem to want to run like a stallion. . . . Stallions are designed to run and not be penned up in a stable. . . . We value Steady Eddie instead of Daring Dan. Christianity is a radical following of Jesus.

The problem with being a mule is that it is almost always sterile.
--Scott Thomas, President of Acts 29, Ten Qualifications of a Church Planter
Jonathan said to the young man who carried his armor, 'Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised. . . .'
--1 Samuel 14:6
