Har fått tilsendt et julekort i .pdf med masse sitater. Her er det mye som jeg vil ta vare på!
The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.
Charity will never be true charity unless it takes justice into account…Let no one attempt with small gifts of charity to exempt himself from the great duties imposed by justice
Everywhere I look I see a lot of charity, but not enough justice.
WHY A WAY OF LIFE?
The person who listens to the Word and does not obey is like someone who glances in a mirror, rushes off, and forgets what they look like. A person who looks into the law of freedom and makes that their habit will be happy.
James 1:23-25, JB
THREE LIFE-GIVING PRINCIPLES
Our life is frittered away by detail … simplify, simplify.
Henry David Thoreau
Love is not found in beauty or lust, but is found in who we
are within the depths of our hearts.
Look not to your own interests but to the interests of others.
Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours.
C. S. Lewis
It is through selflessness that we become truly capable to offer the virtues of love.
What you are aware of, you are in control of; what you are not aware of is in control of you.
Anthony de Mello
God is weaving together a story of 7 billion equally important plot threads
The soul gives unity to what it looks at with love.
The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.
Martin Luther King, Jr
Fake friends believe in rumors.
Real friends believe in you.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Pure, unspoilt religion in the sight of God our Father is this, to help orphans and widows in their need.
The world will be changed when we connect disciple to society not preacher to members.
One rarely hears of people achieving anything unless they first stumble in some respect
We all come to the gospel in our brokenness, with an attachment to things, self-centeredness, addictions, fears and pride. We all need a saviour in every area of our lives, including our sexuality. We all live with pain. The radical inclusiveness of the gospel means we are all welcomed. In a wonderful grace-filled process we find repentance and forgiveness and Christ commits himself through the work of the Holy Spirit to bring transformation to our lives – a life-long process… to bring us into our ultimate goal which is His likeness.

God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity when we plan only the things we can do by ourselves.
Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
Co-incidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.
With disciples you can build movements. With consumers you can build nothing.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever.
If three of us travel together, I shall find two teachers.
Good thinking demands periods when we have no idea what other people are thinking.
…the Bible is… a conversation where various, sometimes harmonious and sometimes discordant, human voices contribute to the gradually growing picture of the character of Yahweh; fully revealed only in Jesus. But it is also a conversation that, rather than ending with the finalisation of the canon, continues beyond it involving all of those who give themselves to Christ’s on-going redemptive movement.

Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.
John Maxwell (see also 2 Peter 3:18).
Old men ought to be explorers… We must be still and still moving into another intensity… a deeper communion.
Evening, morning, noon I cry out to God, who hears me.
Conversation enriches the understanding, but solitude is the school of genius.
Bad people know very little about badness. They’ve lived a sheltered life by always giving in.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.
Every saint has a past and every sinner a future.
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
… the last act in the universal pilgrimage … had shown past all question that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but the race is to those who ran hard even when
they were crippled; that the battle is to those who fought and failed, but who endured to the end.
The closing words of George Seaver’s biography of Scott of the Antarctic
Nothing that clutters the spirit.
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’
World Health Organisation.
Become who you were born to be.
J R R Tolkein
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
