sent by a brother in the Lord


"What landed Jesus on the cross was the preposterous idea that common, ordinary, broken, screwed-up people could be godly!  What drove Jesus' enemies crazy were his criticisms of the "perfect" religious people and his acceptance of the imperfect nonreligious people.  The shocking implication of Jesus' ministry is that anyone can be spiritual.  Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test.  It is a relationship.  Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy.  Spirituality is not about perfection; it is about connection.  The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives.  Accepting the reality of our broken, flawed lives is the beginning of spirituality not because the spiritual life will remove our flaws but because we let go of seeking perfection and, instead, seek God, the one who is present in the tangledness of our lives."
