  • Jesus Lord of the Sabbath
    Conversations Journal Online – May 2016
"God loves each and every one of us with depth, persistence and intensity beyond imagination. God doesn't simply like you. Nor does God simply have warm senitmental feelings toward you just because you were created in the Divine image. The truth is that God loves you with what Hannah Hurnard calls 'a passionate absorbed interest.' God cannot help seeing you through the eyes of love."

-- David Benner

"The root idea of Sabbath is simple as rain falling, basic as breathing. It's that all living things--and many nonliving things too--thrive only by an ample measure of stillness."

-- Mark Buchanan

"Christian ministry is more than doing good. Ministry is an act of service performed either consciously or unconsciously in the name of Christ. Minsitry is Jesus Christ expressing his life through us. It is born, therefore, not in activity; but in solitude, where through the Spirit we experience the power of life from within."

-- James C. Fenhagen
