“Imagine the revolution if every Christian went to church wanting to bless someone and then left the church wanting to bless the world.”

“When they said, “Let’s go to the house of God,”
my heart leaped for joy.em>
Psalm 122:1 The Message

“When you travel the byroads of Central Russia,
you begin to understand the secrets of the pacifying Russian countryside.
It is in the churches.
They lift their belltowers, graceful, shapely, all different,
high over mundane timber and thatch,
from villages that are cutoff and invisible to each other,
they soar to the same heaven.

People were always selfish and often unkind,
but the evening chimes used to ring out,
floating over the villages, fields and woods,
reminding them that they must abandon trivial concerns of this world
and give time and thought to eternity.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“In true community we will not choose our companions, for our choices are so often limited by self-serving motives. Instead, our companions will be given to us by grace.”
