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

December 22, 2010 (being transformed)

”To do for yourself
the best that you have it in you to do -
to grit your teeth and clench your fists
in order to survive the world
at its harshest and worst -
is, by that very act,
to be unable to let something
be done for you and in you
that is more wonderful still.
The trouble with steeling yourself
against the harshness of reality
is that the same steel that secures
your life against being destroyed
secures your life also against
being opened up and transformed.”
- Frederick Buechner
