“Conversion is a gift and an achievement. It is the act of a moment and the work of a lifetime. You can’t attain salvation by disciplines - it is the gift of God… While salvation cannot be attained by discipline around an unsurrendered self, nevertheless when the self is surrendered to Christ and a new center formed, then you can discipline your life around that new center - Christ.” - E. Stanley Jones

“As long as we relate primarily to each other’s wealth, health, stability, intelligence, and soul strength, we cannot develop true community. Community is not a talent show in which we dazzle the world with our combined gifts. Community is the place where our poverty is acknowledged and accepted, not as something we have to learn to cope with as best as we can but as a true source of new life.” (Henri Nouwen)

“Many of us routinely devote years to education and hardly invest minutes in serious spiritual formation; but it is only in spiritual growth that we have staying power in the faith. Surviving adversity demands spiritual maturity that comes only from intentional participation in the habits and graces divinely given for spiritual maturing.” (Barry Callen)
