How Living an Ordinary Life Becomes Extraordinary

"When you think about the message of discipleship, it is a call to the stunningly beautiful and common tasks sharing what have, offering hospitality to all and forgiving one another. And when we witness these ordinary ways of living, they are as stunning as an ordinary spider web, a sunset, or a new baby."

"We expect brilliance from the pulpit, but often accept mediocrity in our souls.  What is presented up front is often exceptional, yet most of us live average lives.  ...It's hard to live the Sermon on the Mount with the whole of your life when your understanding of church is that it is like an exciting concert." --Jon Tyson, Sacred Roots:  Why the Church Still Matters

Your Body is Not Your Masterpiece

"Stop spending all day obsessing, cursing, perfecting your body like it’s all you’ve got to offer the world. Your body is not your art, it’s your paintbrush. Whether your paintbrush is a tall paintbrush or a thin paintbrush or a stocky paintbrush or a scratched up paintbrush is completely irrelevant. What is relevant is that YOU HAVE A PAINTBRUSH which can be used to transfer your insides onto the canvas of your life- where others can see it and be inspired and comforted by it."

“More important, he (Cardinal John O’Connor) truly lived the old line‘Hate the sin, love the sinner.’ You can’t fully appreciate that line until you saw someone like the Cardinal, who really lived that life. Whatever his position on gay rights, he was more than active in New York’s AIDS hospices. He dedicated a major facility at one of the archdiocese’s hospitals to caring for AIDS patients, and he would visit, unannounced, to care for patients, washing them, changing their bedpans. He attended to thousands of patients over the years. In our book, I wrote that the difference between me and the Cardinal was that he was in the business of saving souls, while I was in the business of saving lives. On rereading the book recently, I had to apologize for that one line. He saved more lives than I ever could have.”  –Ed Koch, former mayor of New York City, Newsweek, May 15, 2000

Millennials Need a Bigger God, Not a Hipper Pastor

"Intergenerational relationships are crucial. The number one predictive factor as to whether or not a young Christian will retain his or her faith is whether that person has a meaningful relationship with an older Christian."
