The images portrayed a couple of cows chewing their cuds along a pathway beside a lovely serene river with a couple of people in the scene in quiet contemplation. The presentation was exactly opposite to the normal 'rush' of life.
That scene, M V Tronson says, has remained with him all these years since, such was its subliminal power. It was certainly in contrast to his own busy life as a Christian Minister.
More recently, he was sitting with his wife Delma on the back porch in Tweed Heads New South Wales north coast, and they noted the leaves that change colour in the seasons. He said that as he has slowed down just a little (now 58), he's been able to notice and appreciate such beauty.
So much of what is around us, M V Tronson mused, is taken for granted.
He recounts that in the fourteen years he and his family lived in Moruya on the New South Wales south coast, on a ten acre allotment, he learnt to take advantage of the natural surroundings, including the remarkable sound of the Bell Minor (commonly referred to as the Bellbird).
Mark and Delma Tronson established a Tourism Ministry, 'Australia's Bush Orchestra' with natural bush paths under a canopy of an Ironbark forest and the sounds of birdsong which tourists came from around the world to witness.
The travellers were in awe. As Bell Minors are notoriously difficult to see, we were often asked in jest, where we had placed the speakers. Despite this wonder shown by others every day, it was unusual for him to tune in, for he had become deaf to this wonderful symphony.
Mark Tronson reflected recently that, at the many Christian conferences he has been involved with, inevitably someone addresses 'stillness', to listen to the voice of the Lord. This is one of the great themes of Scripture and most difficult to employ for oneself.
This part of a Minister's life was given a huge emphasis in the best selling book 'Still Waters, Quiet Waters', written by Melbourne's Reverend Dr Rowland Croucher four decades ago.
Yet many a Minister, taking time to be 'still' is criticised by the congregation.
No Minister can be 'out and about' with parishioners 24 hours a day; seven days a week, while still showing model leadership and maintaining the perfect marriage and raising the ideal family.
As stress in the workplace is acknowledged, so too in Christian Ministry. Congregations are increasingly recognising the clergy must take appropriate respite as it is for their benefit as well as for their minister.
M V Tronson, who is not a Pentecostal, acknowledges however that this is one area where the broad Pentecostal movement has positively influenced the Australian Christian scene. The Minister (Pastor) is a servant of God, not primarily the servant of the congregation.
This philosophical position maintains that the Minister (Pastor) serves God and this demands an agenda that listens to the voice of God in a situation of 'quiet contemplation'. This impacts the vision given to their congregations.
This has the potential to turn evangelical Australia upside down for 'good' Mark Tronson stated. This is a very powerful 'image' that affects 'direction.
