“The ideal obedient Jesuit, according to the Constitutions, behaved ‘as if he were a lifeless body which allows itself to be carried to any place and to be treated in any manner desired, or as if here were an old man’s staff which serves in any place and in any manner whatsoever in which the holder wishes to use it.'” Chris Lowney, Heroic Leadership (pg. 159)
“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men angles.” Saint Augustine
One of the greatest dangers we face today is the failure to see out lives as part of this [God’s] grand tale. We settle on living what we imagine to be a much smaller life. We understand the plot line of God entering our story, but we fail to realize we have entered God’s story. Our stories are too small. And consequently our God is too small. Such ignorance is the enemy’s great strategy in this age.
We tend to restrict our God attention to only certain parts of our lives that fit comfortably with our definitions of growth. We look for God where we expect God to be—church, weddings, funerals and the like. It is difficult to imagine that God could be present with us in time of failure or questioning, in moments of hurt or rebellion. But God uses the landscape of our lives to craft and mature us—the good, the bad and the ugly of our stories.

“I invite you to see Muslims as Jesus sees them and to learn from the life and teachings of Jesus how to love, serve, and witness to Muslims.” Georges Houssney

23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.
24 Though they stumble, they will never fall,
for the Lord holds them by the hand.
25 Once I was young, and now I am old.
Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned
or their children begging for bread.
26 The godly always give generous loans to others,
and their children are a blessing.
27 Turn from evil and do good,
and you will live in the land forever.
28 For the Lord loves justice,
and he will never abandon the godly.
He will keep them safe forever,
but the children of the wicked will die.
29 The godly will possess the land
and will live there forever.
Campus Crusade for Christ is is now called Cru. This is the name many campus groups have been using for years.
Anna and I desire to be completely sold out to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
