Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Northern Mockingbird

(courageous bird at defending its nest and its territory)

"They're certainly entitled to think that,
and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions...
but before I can live with other folks
I've got to live with myself.
The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule
is a person's conscience."
- Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird,
Chapter 11,
spoken by the character Atticus

"Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves.
But deep down
below the surface of the average conscience
a still, small voice says to us,
'Something is out of tune.'"
- Carl Jung

"To sin by silence when they should protest
makes cowards of men."
- Abraham Lincoln

"Last, but by no means least,
courage—moral courage,
the courage of one's convictions,
the courage to see things through.
The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave.
It's the age-old struggle...
the roar of the crowd on one side
and the voice of your conscience on the other.
- Douglas MacArthur
