'Christianity is not a religion, it is the proclamation of the end of religion. Religion is human activity dedicated to the job of reconciling God to humanity and humanity to itself. The gospel, however- the good news of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ- is the astonishing announcement that God has done the whole work of reconciliation without a scrap of human assistance'
Robert Farrar Capon
'What you need isn't a better purpose, another prayer, or one more plan for self-improvement. What you need is what we all need- to "wake up" to God's wonderful and undeserved love. You need to wake up to the freedom and joy of what God- on his own- has accomplished for us in Jesus. What you need is grace'
'It's time to wake up. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, your deeds no longer determine your destiny'
