its two a.m. in the predawn morning of the day of my baptism. sleep has completely escaped me. my heart is beating wildly at the thought of what is to come.
"...Not to make people with better morals, but to create a community of prophets and professional lovers, men and women who would surrender to the mystery of the fire of the Spirit that burns within, who would live in even greater fidelity to the omnipresent Word of God, who would enter into the center of it all, the very heart and mystery of Christ, into the center of the flame that consumes, purifies and selts everything aglow with peace, joy, boldness, and extravagant, furious love."
"This, my friends, is what it really means to be a Christian. Our religion never begins with what we do for God. It always starts with what God has done for us, the great and wondrous things that God dreamed of and acheived through Christ Jesus."
i couldn't have said it better myself. :)
