"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).

Why Do Pastors Have To Be Sooo Good?

We would fire and never use a leader who sinned like David ir solomin or Tamar or Rahab. They never would get on our stage. Our Leaders and Preachers better be perfect.... better than us, not anything near as human as we are....

"Many fail to receive the blessings that come from ministering to others because of the belief that God uses only the perfect or the near perfect.... In my life as well as in Scripture, I have seen nothing but the opposite to be true. God often uses those who have major flaws or who have been through a great deal of pain to accomplish many vital tasks for his kingdom.... No one is too messed up for God to use."
(Brennan Manning. The Signature Of Jesus )
