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

lust for destruction...

lust for destruction

"I am back in my beloved city.
The scene of desolation fills my eyes with tears.
At every step my distress and agitation increases.
I cannot recognize houses
or landmarks I once knew well.
Of the former inhabitants, there is no trace.
Everywhere there is a terrible emptiness."

- Khushwant Singh

"The more clearly we can focus our attention
on the wonders and realities
of the universe about us
the less taste we shall have
for the destruction of our race.
Wonder and humility are wholesome emotions,
and they do not exist side by side
with a lust for destruction."

- Rachel Carson
