Sunday message quotes

Two quotes from the message this morning.

Robert Bellah, a sociologist who teaches at the University of California, Berkley, is very interested in the influence of religion on the community.  In an interview in Psychology Today he said, "We should not underestimate the significance of the small group of people who have a new vision of a just and gentle world.  The quality of a culture may be changed when 2 percent of its people have a new vision." – John Stott

It seems to me that the Christian life, when properly lived, is a rhythmic alternation between turning toward God in worship and running toward the world in love and with a passion for justice, between congregation and dispersal, liturgy and labor, worship and work, adoration and obedience.  – Nicholas Wolterstorff
