Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly. The hard truth is that all people love poorly. We need to forgive and be forgiven every day, every hour increasingly. That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family.
– Henri J.M. Nouwen
On Midday Connection today I heard this quotation and just love it:
God does His best work in the dark.
“Wealth takes away the sharp edges of our moral sensitivities and allows a comfortable confusion about sin and virtue.” — Henri Nouwen
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
~ C.S. Lewis
