“Many people will never read a Bible, but they will read you.”

“We read about the name Jesus was given at his birth; Immanuel, meaning “God with us”. This God wasn’t content with dwelling in fiction, this God wasn’t content living with the seraphim and this God wasn’t content with bulls and goats anymore. This God wanted to dwell with you, with all of your mess, with all of your failures with all the dirtiness that is you; he wanted to sit with you. Here’s the amazing thing, God doesn’t care if you’re a catholic, a Lutheran, Post modern or Emergent; he wants to sit with you.”

“Not all paths lead to God, but God can lead any path to himself. This God will dine with anyone.”

“Spirituality can’t be explained, religion seeks for every explanation. Religion will debate and try to prove the existence of God, while spirituality will explain God with as little words as possible. Religion will try to limit God, Christianity, theology and intelligence, while spirituality will open God up to faith; the invisible and confusing and uncomfortable.”

“Many times in the Christian life, we focus on the five-minute salvation experience rather than the lifetime of work the Lord will put into us and the many paths and instances we will find God.”

“I am not interested in coming to a conclusion or finding the “right” answer, I’m interested in going on a lifelong journey with this God who decided he wanted to walk this same journey with me.”

“Conversation isn't about proving a point; true conversation is about going on a journey with the people you are speaking with.”
