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
All written language calls for retransformation into its spoken form; it calls for its lost power.
Richard Palmer, Hermeneutics, p. 15
'Get all you can; save all you can; give all you can.'
John Wesley
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

Grace is grace despite of all controversy.
Shakespeare
Without charity, an evangelizing zeal will take on the guise of a will to power, a desire to universalize one's self-image.
