Quotes of the Day

To engage people in culture we must remember that holiness is separation from sin, not separation from sinners. - Ed Stetzer

Romantic, crusader, and consumer representations of the church get in the way of recognizing the church for what it actually is. If we permit - or worse, promote - dreamy or deceptive distortions of the Holy Spirit creation, we interfere with participation in the real thing. The church we want becomes the enemy of the church we have. -- Eugene H. Peterson, Practice Resurrection (Eerdmans, 2010)
