Quote of the Day

(While discussing why Christians gather together, a flock of geese flies over, providing an illustrative moment.)

“. . . Jesus is always gathering his flock to himself. People from all over the world are finding their hunger for him eclipsing their hunger for anything else and that every substitute they try only adds to their restlessness. As they keep their eye on him, not only do they grow closer to him with each passing day, but they will find themselves alongside others who are headed that way too. Geese fly together like that not because they are obligated to do so, but because it lightens their load and lifts them closer to their goal.”

“That’s the gathering. It’s not when you meet, where you meet, or how you meet in meetings, but that you are gathering your heart to him. If that’s happening, you usually won’t find yourself going it alone very long. You’ll find others heading the same direction and by traveling together you’ll be able to help one another along the way.”

(I have been posting quotes from Wayne Jacobsen’s and Dave Coleman’s book, “So You Don’t Want To Go To Church Anymore.” If you like what you’ve been reading here, you will find their book at your local Christian bookstore, at Amazon.com and Christianbook.com.)
