'when he came, he shellac-ed this whole place with grace.'
-mitch mcvicker on the nativity
'this cup's for the strong and mighty
this cup's for the weak and poor
this cup's for the not so holy
this cup's for the not so sure.'
'he's my Mother, he's my Father
my Brother my Sister too
he helps me when i don't know what to do...'
-old Thomas Dorsey song
'dear God, i'm doing the best i can.'
-Frank (a little boy)
'the child of God knows that the graced life calls him or her to live on a cold and windy mountain, not on the flattened plain of reasonable, middle of the road religion....this is the God of the gospel of grace. A God, who out of love for us, sent the only son he ever had wrapped in our skin. He learned how to walk, stumbled and fell, cried for his milk, sweated blood in the night, was lashed with a whip and showered with spit, was fixed to a cross and died whispering forgiveness on us all...'
-brennan manning/the ragamuffin gospel
