To climb ever closer to God is not to move away from our troubled and troubling neighbors, but closer to them.More Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We learn to dwell with God by learning the practices of hospitality, listening, forgiveness, and reconciliation- the daily tasks of life with other people. Stability in Christ is always stability in communityMore Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As participants in a mobile culture, our default is to move. God embraces our broken world, and I have no doubt that God can use our movement for good. But I am convinced that we lose something essential to our existence as creatures if we do not recognize our fundamental need for stability. Trees can be transplanted, often with magnificent results. But their default is to stay.More Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Staying, we all know, is not the norm in our mobile culture. A great deal of money is spent each day to create desires in each of us that can never be fulfilled. I suspect that much of our restlessness is a return on this investment.More Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Since Moses was in Egypt land, Gods people have been struggling for justice while singing freedom songs. Theology can be clarifying. A good sermon has its place. But nothing is more essential for the life of faith in a community than liturgy that invites us to sing the freedom songs that are sung around the throne of God. Brother Ken Sehested is a song leader in that great cloud of witnesses. Receive his words as gift-and keep singing.More Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
