“If there is a single factor that makes spiritual direction effective as a change agency for the soul, it is this: spiritual direction holds our shame at bay long enough for us to see ourselves as God sees us in Christ.”
Gary W. Moon

“In the years to come, Dallas would begin pouring some of his teaching energy into other off-campus programs. But whether he was teaching from behind the podium at a major university or seminary, or from the pulpit in a church, his philosophy of teaching was clear. He saw it all as service. “That’s why I teach.” He begins, “That’s my work as a teacher. It is a part of a general life which has to be given in loving service to others. No matter where you may be or what you may do that’s what your job is to be. And when you see it as a part of that calling and that vocation to be the loving servant of those around you, then you will begin to ‘occupy your place until I [Jesus] come.’” 2”

“First, he claims many people feel a need for personal growth in a
Christian way of life.”
