Edward T. Welch
“When you have to manage the world, please everyone, earn more than you did last year, and work off five pounds, you will be driven. If not, you run the risk of being un-American or even un-Christian because our economy and churches rely on such people. Even when paralyzed by circumstances, a stressed person is a driven person.”
Edward T. Welch, Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest

Philip Yancey
“Shouldn’t we be presenting an alternative to the prevailing culture rather than simply mimicking it? What would a church look like that created space for quietness, that bucked the celebrity trend and unplugged from noisy media, that actively resisted our consumer culture? What would worship look like if we directed it more toward God than toward our own amusement?”
Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?

“IN DECEMBER DARKNESS The whole world waits in December darkness for a glimpse of the Light of God. Even those who snarl “Humbug!” and chase away the carolers have been seen looking toward the skies. The one who declared he never would forgive has forgiven, and those who left home have returned, and even wars are halted, if briefly, as the whole world looks starward. In the December darkness we peer from our windows watching for an angel with rainbow wings to announce the Hope of the World.”
Ann Weems, Kneeling in Bethlehem

Lemony Snicket
“Boredom is not black licorice, Snicket," she said. "There's no reason to share it with me.”
Lemony Snicket, When Did You See Her Last?

James K.A. Smith
“To recognize the limits of knowledge is not to embrace ignorance. We don’t need less than knowledge; we need more. We need to recognize the power of habit.”
James K.A. Smith, You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit
