"The Swiss theologian, Balthasar, wrote that love precedes knowledge, and it is believed that Goethe said that one learns nothing except that which one loves."

There is so much to meditate on in this blog

Always enjoy picking the next brew for the office.
Hint: Look for the one that says "High Caffeine" - Hey what can I say? It's Monday

And who could resist coffee packaged as "Hot Lava Java"?

The latest post from one of the best blogs on the internet (IMO) references Rowan Williams.... I especially love point 3.

"Williams observes that difficult texts were highly prized in certain cultures, and he identifies three reasons for placing an elevated value on troublesome subject matter: 1) we do not value that which we discover rapidly or easily, 2) the unraveling of obscurity brings delight, and 3) learning (especially from Scripture) is a process - not a triumphant moment of penetration and mastery; it is an extended play of invitation and exploration. Williams concludes that studying the scriptures is a pilgrimage, a parable of our life."

Yep. I have learned some of these same lessons--multiple times each! I will probably relearn some of them in the next few weeks.

Have to say I really quite like TwentyFourteen as a theme, need to make some changes to http://tentmaker.co.uk/ though if I'm gonna use it.  Fair to say I abdicated all blogging for the second half of 2013

I love this extending sentence, spoken out loud it has a pleasing cadence and some powerful truth.

"You can.

You can make a difference.

You can stand up to insurmountable forces.

You can put up with far more than you think you can.

Your lever is far longer than you imagine it is, if you choose to use it.

If you don't require the journey to be easy or comfortable or safe, you can change the world."
