"The story goes that a public sinner was excommunicated and forbidden entry to the church. 
She took her woes to God.
'They won't let me in, Lord, because I am a sinner.'
'What are you complaining about?' said God.
'They won't let Me in either."

"It is for the inconsistent, unsteady disciples whose cheese is falling off their cracker."

We are frail, fearfully and wonderfully made

"We are frail, we are fearfully and wonderfully made 
Forged in the fires of human passion 
Choking on the fumes of selfish rage 
And with these our hells and our heavens 
So few inches apart 
We must be awfully small 
And not as strong as we think we are."
~Rich Mullins

Those who think ..

"Those who think that they have arrived, have lost their way.
Those who think that they have reached their goal, have missed it.
Those who think they are saints, are demons."
~Henri Nouwen

The supreme artist

"Jesus is the supreme artist, more of an artist than all others..
One cannot do better than hold onto the thought of God through everything,
under all circumstances...
at all places, at all times, and try to acquire more knowledge
about Him,
which one can do from the Bible as well as from all other things."
~Vincent van Gogh, 1882

by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator,
made known through Jesus."
