Two Quotes

This weekend I attended a conference on “Is the Church Past her Use-by (Sell by) Date? The Keynote speaker was Dr. Derek Thomas. I want to reflect on these lectures later. However, for the time being I just want to highlight two quotes that struck me:

“If you bear the cross willingly, it will bear you …” Thomas A’Kempis (1380 – 1471)

This quote is a most telling message for the western of our age.

“If you want to humble Christians ask about their prayer lives.” Robert Murray McCheyne (1813-1842)

Mea Culpa!

  1. Mea Culpa? I’m trying to figure out how in Jesus times it was normal to be in prayer without ceasing. I’m learning to be praying through a lot of things right now. Before I butcher I pray, before my day starts… But even if I am asked that question about my prayer life, I wouldn’t say i’m doing all I can. Great quotes. The cross one is deep (and wide). Peace, cheers and blessings
