some other good quotes...

Part II of ?? of my thoughts & responses to Envision '08

"our response to temptation should be looking towards God's wooing of us rather than disciplining a resistance of our will alone" - Lisa Sharon Harper

"all temptations are temptations are a temptation to do something good. The greatest temptations are not the temptation toward "the bad" but the temptation toward the almost god" - Shane Claiborne

Shane talking about intentional community ... "everybody wants a revolution, but nobody wants to do the dishes..."

"We are the Good News. We shouldn't be chasing people down the street to force the into the good news. They should be chasing us down the street because we live in such a way that we are the good news." - Brenda Salter-McNeil


i have a few other bigger ideas i want to blog about in response, but haven't had the time yet...but check back again & i will as soon as possible.

hey Joel. Glad to hear you're having a great time. my thoughts are provoked by the Cizik quote about 'winning' no matter who we partner with if it's for one of God's purposes.

may the Lord feed your soul.
