Static

I participated in telephone conference call yesterday afternoon. One of the members (nobody knew who) of the group had a cell phone that was acting up -- squealing, feedback -- a bunch of static.

The noise was so distracting, that we were unable to finish our business, and had to reschedule our phone conference to a time when everybody will be on land lines.

The lesson I learned from this experience: One person making a lot of static can mess things up and keep a group from accomplishing what they need to do.

Maybe more prayer was needed before the meeting. Perhaps more preparation and thought was needed before the meeting.

At first I thought it was static, but if you listen hard you could hear the ... --- ... SOS comming in between the static.

Sometimes when a person gives out static it is because he needs to be heard.

He may be warning the others of an impending storm...

I used to find static annoying in all avenues of my life, until I realized it was often God slowing me down so that HIS will and not man's will would be done.
