Quote Rotator

Resurrection, not progress, not evolution, not enlightenment, but what the word means, namely, a call from heaven to us: 'Rise up! You are dead, but I will give you life.'
Karl Barth, Jesus Victor, from A Chorus of Witnesses
Whoever questions and even challenges God all the while desiring to obey His Word and listening to His silence, that person is a theologian.
Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, Great Souls, p. 356
'Get all you can; save all you can; give all you can.'
John Wesley
Prayer needs to carry with it the commitment of our whole being to bring about the just conditions that make prayer possible...
Don Postema, Space for God, p. 158-59
Grace is grace despite of all controversy.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Thorin Oakenshield, The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien, p. 301

John Leith, Basic Christian Doctrine, p. 7

About Wirkungsgeschichte

25th March 2011

 

Wirkungsgeschichte.com is dedicated to the idea that the gospel is not a
series of propositional truths to be argued, but a reality to be experienced.
The good news is found in the creative interaction of the Holy Spirit and
human culture.  Wirkungsgeschichte.com brings this interaction into focus
with the hope of revealing the fullness of Christ who transcends any particular
culture or generation.  The goal is to develop a “praise song of ideas” which engenders worship, service and love.

 

Autumn Japanese Maple by Garrick Liddell

“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;


his greatness no one can fathom.


One generation commends your work to another;


they tell of your mighty acts.


They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty-


I will meditate upon your wonderful works.


They tell of the power of your awesome works-

.

and I will proclaim your great deeds.


They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your


righteousness.”

………………………………………………………………….Psalm 145:3-7
