"The biblical lifestyle (posture of life) is always a witness of resistance to the status quo in politics, economics, and all society. It is a witness of resurrection from death. Paradoxically, those who embark on the biblical witness constantly risk death - through execution, exile, imprisonment, persecution, defamation, or harassment - at the behest of the rulers of this age. Yet those who do not resist the rulers of the present darkness are consigned to a moral death, the death of their humanness. That, of all the ways of dying, is the most ignominious.”
― William Stringfellow

The truth, in the sense in which Christ was the truth, is not a sum of sentences, not a definition of concepts, etc., but a life.

Soren Kierkegaard


Just as a whole world of beauty can be discovered in one flower, so the great grace of God can be tasted in one small moment.

Henri Nouwen
