|A Prayer Diary||
God is like a physician exercising his skills on his patient; he shows us plainly who he is as he attends to mankind’s every need.
In Christianity God got to be both a distant and transcendent Father god, and a present and immanent Son god who walked among us.
Lauren F. Winner
For when we judge we set into motion a law as incontrovertible as any of the laws of physics—you reap what you sow.
I must trust that that the little bit of love I sow will now bear many fruits, here in this world and in the life to come.
Sacred peace, fine as the breath of the Holy Spirit, immediately withdraws from the soul which behaves carelessly in it’s presence.
If you see a turtle sitting on a stump, you know it didn’t get there on its own.
Samuel Proctor, quoted in The American Spirit, by David McCullough
Adopting the spirituality of compassion is a revolution which casts down the proud and exalts those of low degree.
Martin L. Smith
