“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -Saint Francis of Assisi
The old divines talked about the gift of faith. It seems to me that there is an earlier gift, a desire, an openness to receive the light when and if it is offered. This openness is a quality of perception like poetry or divination or the wonderful imagination of a happy child. — Morris West in A View from the Ridge
“Most children are open to extraordinary possibilities. Because of their limited experience they often approach situations in life without a predetermined outcome or judgement. They have the unique ability to be available to ‘the impossible’. May my own openness become more like that of a child…” Trish Hernandez
And Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)
Love God, Love Christ, Love Others.
I am passionate about creating Missional Relationships that encourage disciples to personify Christ's message. As a minister in a Community of Christ congregation in Virginia I am learning everyday what it means to be vulnerable, to risk, to experiment, to share in a world that needs the redemptive healing of Christ.
