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

nothing more...

nothing more

"It often occurs that pride and selfishness
are muddled with strength and independence.
They are neither equal nor similar;
in fact, they are polar opposites.
A coward may be so cowardly
that he masks his weakness
with some false personification of power.
He is afraid to love and to be loved
because love tends to strip bare
all emotional barricades.
Without love, strength and independence
are prone to losing every bit of their worth;
they become nothing more than a fearful,
intimidated, empty tent
lost somewhere in the desert of self."

- Criss Jami
