"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).

Muggers Did Not Kill Jesus- The Most Religious Did.

"But changing people is the point—weaning us from our worldly values. The apostle Paul was aware of the worldliness that had penetrated and gained ground within the church. He said there were enemies of the Cross of Christ in Galatia and Corinth, in Philippi and Rome—not so much among the waverers as among the most devout church members. Jesus did not die at the hands of muggers, rapists, or thugs. He fell into the well—scrubbed hands of priests and lawyers, statesmen and professors—society’s most respected members."
(Brennan Manning. The Signature Of Jesus)
