indexWhen you know the story to which you belong, and when you know your role in that story, you have a profound sense of purpose. That is what we are invited onto: God’s ongoing work in this world. When we find ourselves contributing to a greater story, we thrive. (Pamela King)

The descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost means that we can never be mere spectators in God’s story. We are participants. (Bruce Hindeman)

To become a creative minority, is not easy, because it involves maintaining strong links with the outside world while staying true to your faith, seeking not merely to keep the sacred flame burning but also to transform the larger society of which you are a part.

images“Jesus died for my sins” — a phrase that sits at the heart of the telling of the Gospel in the west, indeed in some circles has become all that the Gospel is — is a reductionist statement that does at least two things: it abstracts the meaning of Jesus’ life and sacrifice from history, and it de-politicizes the Lordship of Christ by isolating Jesus from the kingdom. (NT Wright)

Jesus is more than a Savior, Jesus is the King and is creating a kingdom in which he is the ruler. That’s the message of the story of the Bible – that God will dwell with us, through Jesus so that we can become the people of God for the world. (Scot McKnight)

The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news! (Jesus)

God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. It doesn’t matter who we are. It matters who God is. (Christine Caine)

One of the wonderful things about the bible is that there really are no heroes…the biblical narrative is filled with people like us who do stupid things and are still part of the story. Nobody gets ejected. (Eugene Peterson)
