"Our “self” has fallen more in love with its own appearance than in loving “Christ’s appearing.”Our church is less “hidden with Christ in God” than hiding Christ while crowing and crowning itself. “Come to Christ” has devolved to “Come to church.” (Leonard Sweet. The Well Played Life)
"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).
