I thought it might be fun and encouraging to share some of our favorite quips and quotes here for discussion or just meditation/consideration.

 

Here's one I heard today from Richard Rohr:

 

"God comes to you disguised as your life."

I rather like this from 'Finding God in a Tangled World'. The two lines have to be taken inseparably. :)

 

No one is worthy of Jesus' holiness.

No one is unworthy of Jesus' holiness.

"So go out and live real good and I promise you'll get beat up real bad. But, in a little while after you're dead, you'll be rotted away anyway. It's not gonna matter if you have a few scars. It will matter if you didn't live." — Rich Mullins

To take up the study of mysticism with thought to become a mystic is as for a man to take up women's studies with thought to becoming a woman.

“[F]or theological interpretation of the Christ-event, description and not explanation remains the operative ideal... The attempt to describe in other words and concepts the Christ-event is a necessary task if it is to be grasped at all, but let such attempts proliferate, let them be held lightly, and let no exclusive claims be made for them."

Paul DeHart,
Trial of the Witness
, describing the hermeneutics of theologian Hans Frei
