Living as Apprentices
Some quotes for Lent:
“Remember that the ashes on your forehead are created from the burnt palms of last Palm Sunday. New beginnings invariably come from old false things that are allowed to die.” Richard Rohr
You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do. Ann Lamott.
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. Howard Thurman
God’s call, vocation, is twofold. God calls us saying, “Come, follow me.” We arrive and then we must follow. We find but must go on seeking. God’s call is a never-ending call, to the unknown, to adventure, to follow him in the night, in solitude. It is a call incessantly to go further, and further. For it is not static but dynamic (as creation also is dynamic) and reaching him means going on and on. God’s call is like the call to become an explorer; it is an invitation to adventure. Ernesto Cardenal
