To keep fresh in our minds the some of the things we’ve recently been talking about…blessing…finding God in unexpected places…below you’ll find a few quotes, an inspiring article and a movie clip.
May we continue to keep in the forefront of our minds the question, ‘God what are you up to, and where can I join in?’
“Dreams, by definition, are supposed to be unique and imaginative. Yet the bulk of the population is dreaming the same dream. It’s a dream of wealth, power, fame, plenty of sex and exciting recreational opportunities. What does it mean when a whole culture dreams the same dreams?” (Kalle Lasen, Culture Jam:How to Reverse America’s Suicidal Consumer Binge – and Why We Must)
“There is no event so commonplace but that God is present within it, always hidden, always leaving you room to recognize him or not… because in the last analysis all moments are key moments and life itself is grace.” (Fredrich Buechner)
“…spirituality is about the immediacy of God’s presence everywhere. It is about patience and paying attention, about seeing, feeling, and hearing things that only a moment ago were inaccessible.” (Lawrence Kushner)
“When imagination fails doctrines become ossified, witness and proclamation wooden, doxologies and litanies empty, consolations hollow, and ethics legalistic.” (Amos Wilder)
“In a flat, wiki-world, Reformation is not likely to happen through large movements or charismatic leaders. It’s going to happen as small groups of revolutionaries begin meeting locally to begin plotting together how to change the world with God’s love.” (Mark Clawson)
