aanhalings vir nadenke

“Disciplines are intentional ways we open space in our lives for the worship of God”
Adele Ahlberg Calhoun

“We have become consumers of religion rather than cultivators of a spiritual life; we have spawned an industry of Christian kitsch and bookstores full of spiritual junk food that leaves us sated and flabby.”  
Dennis Olkholm

  1. Na aanleiding van die 'saam eet' gesprek - ek kry vandag die volgende aanhaling:
    "We all need to eat and drink to stay alive. But having a meal is more than eating and drinking. It is celebrating the gifts of life we share. A meal together is one of the most intimate and sacred human events. Around the table we become vulnerable, filling one another's plates and cups and encouraging one another to eat and drink. Much more happens at a meal than satisfying hunger and quenching thirst. Around the table we become family, friends, community, yes, a body."
