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

"Freedom has its life
in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men
and so it must be daily earned and refreshed -
else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots,
it will wither and die."
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

"People demand freedom of speech
as a compensation for
the freedom of thought
which they seldom use."
- Soren Kierkegaard

"There are two freedoms -
the false, where a man is free to do what he likes;
the true, where he is free to do what he ought."
- Charles Kingsley

"Freedom is not procured
by a full enjoyment of what is desired,
but by controlling the desire."
- Epictetus

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves
be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
You, my brothers, were called to be free.
But do not use your freedom
to indulge the sinful nature;
rather, serve one another in love."
- Galatians 5: 1,13 NIV
