“Another cause back of our top-heavy and ugly over-organization is fear. Churches and societies founded by saintly men with courage, faith and sanctified imagination appear unable to propagate themselves on the same spiritual level beyond one or two generations. The spiritual fathers were not able to sire others with courage and faith equal to their own. The fathers had God and little else, but their descendants lose their vision and look to methods and constitutions for the power their hearts tell them they lack. Then rules and precedents harden into a protective shell where they can take refuge from trouble. It is always easier and safer to pull in our necks than to fight things out on the field of battle. In all our fallen life there is a strong gravitational pull toward complexity and away from things simple and real. There seems to be a kind of sad inevitability back of our morbid urge toward spiritual suicide. Only by prophetic insight, watchful prayer and hard work can we reverse the trend and recover the departed glory.” ~ A.W. Tozer
Quote shared with me by Iain Hodgins "...A Christian may be called to serve others even though blinded by his own tears. Bereft, to comfort them. Trembling, to reassure them…It is so easy to make our own needs - our own ‘hour’ - an excuse for not serving. Can’t you see I’m busy! Can’t you see my pain! my burdens! That is exactly what Christ did NOT say. In his hour he was available for others." Donald Macleod, 'From Glory to Golgotha: Controversial Issues in the Life of Christ' (Tain: Christian Focus Publications, 2002), from chapter 5, Kindle version)"
Thinking@Trinity was a lot of fun last night; we looked at the following amongst other stuff: 1) Why do we need to think? 2) Why is it important to think right about God 3) The Revelation 3:20 Conundrum 4) How would we go about answering a range of questions?
