Goodness Came Among Us

If, so to say,
the Idea of the Good
has actually entered
the room and spoken,
we have to stop
our former discussion
and listen.

Motive for Mission

blank squarethe-sword-of-the-spirit_nI think that the deepest motive
for mission is simply the desire
to be with Jesus where he is,
on the frontier between the
reign of God and the usurped
dominion of the devil.

Stretches of darkness

If anyone tells you that the life of prayer is one uninterrupted experience of being happy with Jesus, do not follow him. He is not a safe guide. Those who follow the Lamb know that there are stretches of darkness and loneliness and perplexity along the way, and they know that Jesus himself went that way.
