""God has justified us. Satan cannot overturn that decree. And God means for our ultimate safety to have an immediate effect on our lives. He means for the happy ending to take away the slavery and fear of the now. If we do not need to fear our last and greatest enemy, death, then we do not need to fear anything. We can be free: free for joy, free for others."" Dec 15, 2014 06:23PM

C.P. Cavafy
“When you set sail for Ithaca,
wish for the road to be long,
full of adventures, full of knowledge.”
C.P. Cavafy

Karl Barth
“Theology is not a private subject for theologians only. Nor is it a private subject for professors. Fortunately, there have always been pastors who have understood more about theology than most professors. Nor is theology a private subject of study for pastors. Fortunately, there have repeatedly been congregation members, and often whole congregations, who have pursued theology energetically while their pastors were theological infants or barbarians. Theology is a matter for the Church.”
Karl Barth

Gloria Naylor
“The music in his laughter had a way of rounding off the missing notes in her soul.”
Gloria Naylor, Linden Hills

Madeleine L'Engle
“A self is not something static, tied up in a pretty parcel and handed to the child, finished and complete. A self is always becoming.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet

Pythagoras
“Should one in boldness say, Lo, I am God!
Besides the One--Eternal--Infinite,
Then let him from the throne he has usurped
Put forth his power and form another globe,
Such as we dwell in, saying, This is mine.
Nor only so, but in this new domain
For ever let him dwell. if this he can,
Then verily he is a god proclaimed.”
Pythagoras

The Weeping Willow (Literature & Fiction)

Description: Hollow whistles chase one another as they run through her waving hair. There she stands; tall, strong, and beautiful—hardly noticed. She has no story of her own. Years has she lived in that single spot. She has heard them come; she has heard them go. And every once in awhile, she feels them too. Those who leave her hardly realize their attribution to the scars and wrinkles deeply engrained in her flesh. Since the seed, accursed. The passing of each day mars her—once tender skin, now calloused scars. They stay but a moment, they speak but a sentence, their stories become hers, their despair, her sorrow. That is why she is called, The Weeping Willow
