Faith and Sexuality Dialogue in Philly: Oriented to Love

Thursday through Saturday I’ll be in Philadelphia for Oriented To Love: a dialogue about Faith and Sexuality. The dialogue is sponsored by Evangelicals for Social Action.

The event aims to bring various people and perspectives together to listen and understand. More details about the event are here: http://www.evangelicalsforsocialaction.org/oriented-to-love/

I would really appreciate it if you kept me in your thoughts and or prayers this weekend!  I’m continuing my efforts of engaging churches and communities on the intersections of race, sexuality, and reconciliation.

Enjoy the Day! God Made It!

Hey all! Just wanted to share a few Christian One-Liners that were forwarded to me recently. Thanks Jon!

* Don’t let your worries get the best of you; remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

* Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.
* Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.

* It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

* The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

* When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there.

* People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.

*Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.

* Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.

* If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

* God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you

* Some minds are like concrete thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

* Peace starts with a smile.

* A some church folks who are singing “Standing on the Promises” are just sitting on the premises

* We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges

* Be ye fishers of men. You catch them – He’ll clean them.

* Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

* Don’t put a question mark where God put a period.

* Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

* Forbidden fruits create many jams

* God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called

* God grades on the cross, not the curve

* God loves everyone, but probably prefers “fruits of the spirit” over “religious nuts!

* God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

* He who angers you, controls you

* If God is your Co-pilot – swap seats!

* The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

* Prayer: Don’t give God instructions — just report for duty!

* The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

* We don’t change the message, the Message changes us

* You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to …discourage him

* The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given

May God and His Son bless you from today on out! Don’t FORGET pass this along, I bet someone will LOVE it just as much as you did.
