From My Quote-Collection

"The unanswered questions aren't nearly as dangerous as the unquestioned answers."

"We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them."

"Naked is having no clothes on. Nekkid is having no clothes on and being up to something."

"Our truth, when it becomes the ONLY truth, ceases to be truth."

"While we're not fearful of tasting new things, we don't necessarily swallow all that we taste."

"When we know Him we are free to find Him wherever and in whatever He may be."

"God comes to us, disguised as our life."

"Heresy: absolutizing a partial truth. All truth from our perspective is partial."

"Avoid dangerous cults -- practice safe sects."

"You see, one human being to me, even a bum on a street, is worth more than all the holy books in the world...My Spirit is not an historical thing, it's alive, right now, RIGHT NOW, as fresh as your next breath. Holy books and religious rites are sacred and powerful, but they are not moreso than the least of you. They were only meant to steer you in the right direction, not to keep you arguing with each other, and certainly not to keep you from trusting your own personal connection with me." ~Paul Harvey, "An Open Letter from God"

"No person needs to prepare to meet God; we are meeting God every day and every hour in the day. We meet God in the rising sun, in the flowing stream, in the budding rose, in the joy of friendship and love, and in the silence of our own soul." ~Earnest Holmes

“No problem can be solved with the same consciousness that caused it.” ~Albert Einstein

"Religion is not an end in itself. One's union with God is the ultimate goal.. There are so many religions because immature people tend to emphasize trivial differences instead of important likenesses. Differences between faiths lie in creeds and rituals rather than religious principles." (Peace Pilgrim)

Dena, I'm so glad you have a blog now! You've been really instrumental in helping me get to know God as all-forgiving and not punitive. I'm so glad for you!

Thanks for your encouragement, Susan ... I do want to share the joy I've discovered in discovering God anew...!
