Becoming

"The people to whom we minister and speak will not recall 99 percent of what we say to them. But they will never forget the kind of people we are. This is certainly true of influential ministers in my own past. The quality of our souls will indelibly touch others for good or for ill. So we must never forget that the most important thing happening at any moment, in the midst of all our ministerial duties, is the kind of persons we are becoming"

Dallas Willard, The Great Omission, Page 124

I like this, David. A lot.

And will continue to reflect on it in a way that I hope will lead to change and action in my own life.

And on a slightly related note (in a more corporate sense), I've just been thinking about whether the following could be a good thing for HTR/LiveLife to do at some point in the future:
