"The power of the body of Christ has been sealed and sanctioned off in clergy prison for too long in church history. Its time for another jailbreak. There were no exclusive "leading" figures who conducted the ministry of Jesus in the New Testament. All of Jesus' resurrection- life- filled followers bore witness to the living Christ through sacrament and service." (I Am A Follower. Leonard Sweet. Pg 147)
"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)
"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)
It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).
