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

all my hope

"0 Thou, who by the light of nature
increases in us the desire for the light of Thy mercy
in order to be led by this to Thy glory,
to Thee I offer thanks, Creator, God,
because Thou hast given me pleasure
in what Thou hast created
and I rejoice in Thy handiwork."
- Johannes Kepler
(Harmonice mundi)

"If I have been allured into brashness
by the wonderful beauty of thy works,
or if I have loved my own glory among men,
while advancing in work destined for thy glory,
gently and mercifully pardon me:
and finally, deign graciously to cause
that these demonstrations may lead to thy glory
and to the salvation of souls,
and nowhere be an obstacle to that. Amen."
- Johannes Kepler
(Harmonice mundi)

"Only the merits of our saviour Jesus Christ.
It is in Him, as I steadfastly testify,
that there rest all my retreat,
all my consolation, all my hope."
- Johannes Kepler
(his dying words)
