"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).

Jesus Deals in Feathers?

"My hope is to gain a fresh hearing for Jesus, especially among those who believe they already understand him. In this case, quite frankly, presumed familiarity has lead to unfamiliarity, unfamiliarity has lead to contempt, and contempt has lead to profound ignorance.
Very few people today find Jesus interesting as a person or if  vital relevance to the course of their lives. He is not generally regarded as a real-life personality who deals with real-life issues but is thought to be concerned with the feathery realm other than the one we must deal with, and must deal with now. And frankly, he is not taken to be a person of much ability. "
(Dallas Willard. The Divine Conspiracy)
