Favorite Quotations

"What then is our armor?  It is our vulnerability.  It is what "Geez" magazine (my favorite Canadian publication) calls, ". . .  the spirit beneath the tradition, a spirit connected to everything.  It emanates from the ancient saints of virtue and the volunteers in thrift store aisles.  A trustworthy spirit exists in our midst.  It will appear both futile and liberating.  It will be both dissident and exemplary.  It forgets to fret for hope."   ("Geez," Winter 2014, Page 63, sent by Donna Schaper) 

Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can.

John Wesley, as quoted in Spiritual Illuminations by Peg Streep
