❝ Don’t go looking for something you haven’t lost. God has your spouse set apart for you. They are yours. Be still.

— A piece of advice from a conversation with a friend. (via plainandsimplejeanine)

Serving Christ is not about a moment in the future, but about where we are right now. Sometimes the hardest place to serve God is where we are right now, because there’s nothing particularly epic or exciting about it.

Sometimes the idea of serving God in a foreign land sounds much more thrilling than serving Him in our jobs as baristas or retail workers. However, we need to remember that everything we do is an opportunity to serve God. Honoring God is not just about the job that we have, but also about the way we do that job.

❝ If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Darling Magazine's Mission Statement - The Art of Being a Woman

❝ So many people glorify and romanticize “busy”. I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes.

❝ By 2050 only about one-fifth of the world’s 3.2 billion Christians will be non-Hispanic whites. Soon, the phrase “a white Christian” may sound like a curious oxymoron, as mildly surprising as “a swedish Buddhist.” Such people can exist, but a slight eccentricity is implied.

This global perspective should make us think carefully before asserting “what Christians believe” or “how the church is changing.” All too often, statements about what “modern Christians accept” or what “Catholics today believe,” refer only to what that ever-shrinking remnant of Western Christians and Catholics believe. Such assertions are outrageous today, and as time goes by they will become ever further removed from reality. Europe is demonstrably not the Faith. The era of Western Christianity has passed within our lifetimes, and the day of the Southern churches is dawning. The fact of change itself is undeniable: it has happened, and will continue to happen.


Philip Jenkins, The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity

It’s interesting to see what the church will look like within the next 50 years, as the Christian “majority” shifts to the global south and east, and the implications it will have on how we do theology. I, for one, am excited to see the new questions, understandings, and expressions, that this new context will bring.
