In my sermon prep, movie watching, and reading, I come across some fantastic quotes. Here are some new & old favorites of mine!
“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” -Anne Lamott
“Impossible is not what it used to be.” -Tom Baldwin, The 4400 [very appropriate when applied to what Jesus can do in and through us]
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure! It is our Light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves: who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.” -Mariam Williamson, A Return to Love
“Christianity is most often seen as having to do with forgiveness and Heaven, not as a lifestyle of reorienting life to God’s story as a Christ follower.” -Todd D. Hunter, Christianity Beyond Belief
