overheard…

“i beseech you from the bowels of Christ to consider that you may be mistaken.” ~oliver cromwell as quoted in robert ludlum’s the janson directive

“the pains of community are situated between the joy of this communion and friendship with Jesus and the joy of giving life to others: the mission.” ~vanier, community and growth, pg. 84

“mission is revealing to others their fundamental beauty, value and importance in the universe, their capacity to love, to grow and to do beautiful things and to meet God. Mission is transmitting to people a new inner freedom and hope; it is taking away from their shoulders the terrible yoke of fear and guilt. to give life to people is to reveal to them that they are loved just as they are by God…” ibid, pg. 86.

“we did it. he did. i did. we rose to the challenge working together, and the fact that it required all of me, that i was in it with my family and for my family, that i was surrounded by wild, shimmering beauty and it was, well, kind of dangerous made the time…transcendent. i was no longer stasi. i was sacagawea, indian princess of the west, a valiant and strong woman.”
~sacagawea, from harried housewife to holy warrior: my personal epic, pg. 3.
