“A boy needs a father to show him how to be in the world. He needs to be given swagger, taught how to read a map so that he can recognize the roads that lead to life and the paths that lead to death, how to know what love requires, and where to find steel in the heart when life makes demands on us that are greater than we think we can endure.”
Ian Morgan Cron, Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me: A Memoir. . . of Sorts

“Beauty can break a heart and make it think about something more spiritual than the mindless routine we go through day after day to get by. Francis was a singer, a poet, an actor. He knew that the imagination was a stealth way into people's souls, a way to get all of us to think about God. For him, beauty was its own apologetic. That's why a church should care about the arts. They inspire all of us to think about the eternal.”
Ian Morgan Cron, Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim's Tale

“The Enneagram is a tool that awakens our compassion for people just as they are, not the people we wish they would become so our lives would become easier.”
Ian Morgan Cron, The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid.”
Frederick Buechner, Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”
Frederick Buechner

“Turn around and believe that the good news that we are loved is better than we ever dared hope, and that to believe in that good news, to live out of it and toward it, to be in love with that good news, is of all glad things in this world the gladdest thing of all. Amen, and come Lord Jesus.”
Frederick Buechner, The Clown in the Belfry: Writings on Faith and Fiction

“The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you.”
Frederick Buechner
