  • D. shared from This Day by Wendell Berry
    Your Sabbath, Lord, thus keeps us by Your will, not ours. And it is fit Our only choice should be to die Into that rest, or out of it.
  • D. shared from This Day by Wendell Berry
    We are to rest on the sabbath also, I have supposed, in order to understand that the providence or the productivity of the living world, the most essential work, continues while we rest. This work is entirely independent of our work, and is far more complex and wonderful than any work we have ever done or will ever do. It is more complex and wonderful than we will ever understand.
  • D. shared from The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly? by Seth Godin
    It’s far more dangerous to fly too low than too high, because it feels safe to fly low. We settle for low expectations and small dreams and guarantee ourselves less than we are capable of. By flying too low, we shortchange not only ourselves but also those who depend on us or might benefit from our work. We’re so obsessed about the risk of shining brightly that we’ve traded in everything that matters to avoid it.
    Note: No one rises to low expectations
  • D. shared from Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck?: And Other Provocations, 2006-2012 by Seth Godin
    If it’s worth teaching, it’s worth teaching well. If it’s worth investing the time of 30 or 230 or 3,330 people, then it’s worth investing the effort to actually figure out how to get the message across. School is broken. Legislative politics are broken. Linear is broken. YouTube and Bloglines, on the other hand, are new platforms, platforms that enable the education of millions of people every day, quickly and for free.
    Note: Change is coming from outside the church to inside... Will we engage the flow or secure doors
  • D. shared from The Rob Bell Reader: Selections from Love Wins, Velvet Elvis, Sex God, Drops Like Stars, and Jesus Wants to Save Christians by Rob Bell
    Jesus calls disciples to keep entering into this shared life of peace and joy as it transforms our hearts, until it’s the most natural way to live that we can imagine. Until it’s second nature. Until we naturally embody and practice the kind of attitudes and actions that will go on in the age to come. A discussion about how to “just get into heaven” has no place in the life of a disciple of Jesus, because it’s missing the point of it all.
    Note: Life with Jesus is more about now than the afterlife
