"Never make a principle out of your experience; let God be as original with other people as He is with you."            -Oswald Chambers

"They have cradled you in custom, they have primed you with their preaching. They have soaked you in convention, through and through; they have put you in a showcase; you're a credit to their teaching- but don't you hear the wild? - it's calling you. Let us probe the silent places, let us seek what luck betide us; let us journey to a lonely land I know. There's a whisper on the night-wind, there's a star agleam to guide us, and the wild is calling; calling... let us go."

"The kingdom of God? Time after time Jesus tries to drum into our heads what He means by it. He heaps parable upon parable like a madman. He tries shouting it. He tries whispering it... What He seems to be saying is that the kingdom of God is the time, or a time beyond time, when it will no longer be humans in their lunacy who are in charge of the word of God but in His mercy who will be in charge of the world. It's the time above all else for wild rejoicing- like getting out of jail, like being cured of cancer, like finally at long last coming home. And it is at hand, Jesus says."

"This life, therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished but it is actively going on. This is not the goal but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed."
                     Martin Luther

"Not of the unmaking but of making. The old field of space, time, matter and the senses to be weeded, dug and sown for a new crop. We may be tired of the old field: God is not."
                            C.S. Lewis
