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."

How Science Can Improve Your Sermon

"Instead, as you plan your worship services and your sermons, carefully consider whether each of the individual elements enhance or distract from the central message of the morning. For example, use illustrative pictures in your PowerPoint presentations instead of words. Your congregation won't have to choose between reading and listening to you. Add sensory elements such as scents (incense anyone?) or sounds. Use different colors and images every week of a sermon series to visually reinforce your messages."
