Christian Quotation of the Day

“If I am asked, as a purely intellectual question, why I believe in Christianity, I can only answer . . . I believe it quite rationally based upon the evidence. But the evidence in my case . . . is not really in this or that alleged demonstration; it is an enormous accumulation of small but unanimous facts.”

…G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Christian Quotation of the Day

This was the essence of the sermon last week by Tim Ayers. I thought it was good. It refers to any time youe try to be alone with God, say just before bed.
Make it possible for you to serve God consistently for a life time. 1 . Think about being in the presence of God. 2. Spend a few moments looking over your day with gratitude for the gifts of that day. 3. Ask God to give you the strength to look at your actions and attitudes and motives with honesty. 4. Review your day. 5. Have a heart to heart talk with God about what you’ve realized about yourself. 6. Take comfort from him as one of your children does when you put them to bed.
“God is in the details,” Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Christian Quotation of the Day

“While Christians have had a long heritage of rigorous scholarship and careful thinking, some circles still view the intellect with suspicion or even as contradictory to Christian faith. And many non-Christians are quick to label Christians as anti-intellectual and obscurantist. But this need not be so. In this classic introduction to Christian thinking, John Stott makes a forceful appeal for Christian discipleship that engages the mind as well as the heart.”

The greatest proof of Christianity for others is not how far a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his belief.

…T. S. Eliot (1888-1965)
