"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma." Ephesians 5 v 1-2 1 Don't be defined by what you're against: its about embracing Jesus! 2 A great summary of the themes of Dallas Willard's life and legacy. 3 "The Spirit is like a bird, fragile alloy of heaven" Spirit break out.......  4 Don't be a practical atheist! Small things matter.... 5 If you don't plan your life.....someone else will? Focus!

being remade, being refashioned is costly, painful and......always worthwhile! "The church is the rough draft of a new humanity, and the Spirit is its author. Rough drafts are always a rather tragic state of affairs. But as every writer knows, there’s only one thing to do about it, and that is to revise. That is the work of the Spirit: revising and repairing the human race, slowly and patiently, one fragment at a time.” From Ben Myers, ‘Christ the stranger: the theology of Rowan Williams’
