Although it is often quite hard, nothing will sharpen you more nor clear away uncertainty more than sincerely listening, understanding and responding to people who strongly disagree with you.

Untested confidence is little more than blind hope.


Just chatted with church leadership about their approach to homosexuality. Really tough.

"With that we have articulated a basic criticism of the most grandiose of all human attempts to advance toward the divine—by way of the church. Christianity conceals within itself a germ hostile to the church. It is far too easy for us to base our claims to God on our own Christian religiosity and our church commitment, and in so doing utterly to misunderstand and distort the Christian idea."

- Excerpt From: Metaxas, Eric. “Bonhoeffer.”

Was talking with a friend tonight and thinking a lot about the difference between a relationship where I simply enjoy the other person and how they make me feel vs. a relationship where care for the other’s well-being is so deep that it eclipses concerns for the self.

Both get regularly labeled as “love” but only the latter is sacrificial. Any thing that lasts must be built on the latter.


"I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

- Percy Bysshe Shelley
