How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world! How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make their contribution toward introducing justice straightaway… And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!
All we have to decide is what to do with the time we are given.
Gandalf to Frodo, The Fellowship of the Ring (movie)
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins not through strength, but through persistence.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Sweat plus sacrifice equals success.
–Charles O. Finley
From Pastor Bob:
When God created man, He made Him in His image. God poured into Adam a measure of his own Fatherhood. He imbued man with a vestige of his own responsibility, authority, power, and love. God gave men the responsibility, authority, power, and love to take care of that which he has charged to our stewardship. According to Genesis 1:26-28, God told humanity to take care of His creation, and His Children, and I think men—especially fathers— feel both the honor and the tremendous weight of providing for, guiding, protecting and loving our families—that sphere of God’s creation that the Lord has entrusted to our care.
Thanks to all the father’s who have honored the Lord by accepting this role.
