Words to inspire

This past week I have been at Synod in George. Today we will be sharing in the Worship Services of all the surrounding Methodist churches.

I leave you with a few quotes, some which I have used in a few sermons of late:

You can safely assume that we’ve created God in our own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people we do.
Fr. Thomas Weston

I really love God as much as I love the person I love the least.
Dorothy Day

Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible.
Dalai Lama

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

We are what we repeatedly do … excellence then, is not an act but a habit.

The biggest difference between you and God is that God doesn’t think he is you.
Anne Lamott

The great obstacle is simply this: the conviction that we cannot change because we are dependent upon what is wrong. But this is the addict’s excuse, and we know that it will not do.
Wendell Berry

Grace & Peace, Alan

PS. Vacuum cleaners also need to be cleaned.
