  • "The church is not a select circle of the immaculate, but a home where the outcast may come in. It is not a palace with gate attendants and challenging sentinels along the entrance-ways holding off at arm's-length the stranger, but rather a hospital where the broken-hearted may be healed, and where all the weary and troubled may find rest and take counsel together." -James H. Aughey-

    • "When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible." - Arthur C. Clarke-

      • "All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another." -Anatole France-

        • "Believing in the resurrection does not just mean assenting to a dogma and noting a historical fact. It means participating in this creative act of God’s … Resurrection is not a consoling opium, soothing us with the promise of a better world in the hereafter. It is the energy for a rebirth of this life. The hope doesn’t point to another world. It is focused on the redemption of this one." -Jürgen Moltmann-

          • "I am so tired by the things said about God. I understand God's patience with the wicked, but I do wonder how he can be so patient with the pious!" -George MacDonald-

            • “If we suppose that God, being supremely powerful, supremely wise, and supremely loving, can achieve, and will settle for nothing less than, perfect justice, then we must also suppose that he will settle for nothing less than a full atonement for sin—something that will actually make up for, or cancel out, sin; punishment (in and of itself) has no power to do that.” Thomas Talbott (The Inescapable Love of God)

              • "We do not draw people to Christ by loudly discrediting what they believe, by telling them how wrong they are and how right we are, but by showing them a light that is so lovely that they want with all their hearts to know the source of it." -Madeleine L'Engle-

                • God made all of His creation to give. He made the sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds, the earth, the plants to give. He also designed His supreme creation, man, to give. But fallen man is the most reluctant giver in all of God's creation. - John MacArthur
                  Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
                  Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
                  Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]

                  • "No circumstance is so big that He cannot control it." -Jerry Bridges-

                    "Exchange your vision for the One who transforms limited for Unlimited." -David E. Johnson-

                    "Our God has boundless resources." -A.B. Simpson-

                    • "Every true prayer has its background and its foreground. The foreground of prayer is the intense, immediate desire for a certain blessing which seems to be absolutely necessary for the soul to have; the background of prayer is the quiet, earnest desire that the will of God, whatever it may be, should be done. Only when the two are there together, the special desire resting on the universal submission, the universal submission opening into the special desire, is the picture perfect and the prayer complete." -Phillips Brookes-

                      "Prayer is co-operation with God. It is the purest exercise of the faculties God has given us- an exercise that links those faculties with the Maker to work out the intentions He had in mind in their creation. Prayer is aligning ourselves with the purposes of God." -E. Stanley Jones-
