Planting Seeds and Throwing Rocks


nothing wrong with practice and hard work

Here’s a quote from my favorite author and theologian, NT Wright.  “Our culture prefers effortless, spontaneity with occasional divine intervention in emergencies rather than working alongside God to develop the muscles which will meet those emergencies with a god given 2nd nature – which appears spontaneous but is really the result of thinking and choosing and practicing.”

forgiveness is free but following Jesus is a series of hard steps (ones taken on purpose, not accidentally, and formed over time)
