I testify that He is utterly incomparable in what He is, what He knows, what He has accomplished and what He has experienced. Yet, movingly, He calls us His FriendsNeal A. Maxwell

Stephen Batchelor
“The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks. (65)”
Stephen Batchelor, Confession of a Buddhist Atheist

John Calvin
“In forming an estimate of sins, we are often imposed upon by imagining that the more hidden the less heinous they are.”
John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion

John Calvin
“Those who set up a fictitious worship, merely worship and adore their own delirious fancies; indeed, they would never dare so to trifle with God, had they not previously fashioned him after their own childish conceits.”
John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion

Richard J. Foster
“A farmer is helpless to grow grain; all he can do is provide the right conditions for the growing of grain. He cultivates the ground, he plants the seed, he waters the plants, and then the natural forces of the earth take over and up comes the grain...This is the way it is with the Spiritual Disciplines - they are a way of sowing to the Spirit... By themselves the Spiritual Disciplines can do nothing; they can only get us to the place where something can be done.”
Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth

Lisa Kleypas
“Most lives are not distinguished by great achievements. They are measured by an infinite number of small ones. Each time you do a kindness for someone or bring a smile to his face, it gives your life meaning. Never doubt your value, little friend. The world would be a dismal place without you in it. (tweaked version of a passage from Scandal in Spring)”
Lisa Kleypas, Scandal in Spring
