five on Friday

Jesus said you are to love one another as I have loved you, a love that will possibly lead to the bloody, anguish gift of yourself, a love that forgives seven times seven, that keeps no record of wrong. This is the criterion, sole norm, the standard of discipleship in the New Israel of God.”  Brennan Manning, The Furious Longing of God

1 Wedding cakes and what they might tell us. An interesting read!
2 Steve Tilley’s honest telling of an alternative career as a pastor-priest.
3 Don Carson’s insightful five reflections on the failures of the young, restless and reformed!
4 Why the future will be much less materialistic. Right. Please and most welcomed!
5 Being the kind of person you can talk about spiritual things about. Jan says it well.
