Currently Reading: The Broken Way

"Death and resurrection. The paradox of it breaks into me afresh: unless we die, unless we surrender, unless we sacrifice, we remain alone. Lonely. But if we die, if we surrender, if we sacrifice, that is when we experience the abundance, that is when we dance in communion. The life that yields the most - yields the most." (pg 41)

"We aren't here to one-up one another, but to help one another up." (pg 91)

"Letting yourself be loved is an act of terrifying vulnerability and surrender. Letting yourself be loved is its own kind of givenness. Letting yourself be loved gives you over to someone's mercy and leaves you trusting that they will keep loving you, that they will love you the way you want to be loved, and that they won't break your given heart." (pg 100)

"No matter what they're saying, everyone's asking, 'Can you just love me?'" (pg 105)

"I'd looked up at the clock. Time is for this. The hands on the clock never stop waving to get my attention, that time and my own hands are for nothing more than love - not schedules or agendas or to-do lists. Continuously make the ever-present Christ present. The hands of every clock never stop signing this: the best use of your hands is always love. The best way to say you love is always time. The best time to love is always now." (pg 107)

"The only way to live a truly remarkable life is not to get everyone to notice you, but to leave noticeable marks of His love everywhere you go." (pg 110)
