should be on my OTHER near-dead blog, but i'll put it here instead.
spoken by a great man i never had the chance to meet.
"I am surprised that Christians, who claim the wild message of Jesus Christ, aren’t out on the edge of adventure more often. I have seen all too frequently young and old alike withdraw beneath the shields of niceness, apathy and boredom in order to avid the high cost of loving and serving Christ. The pew has gotten too comfortable and we are suffering immensely for a paucity of real adventure.” (Tim Hansel; Holy Sweat)
