“Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

- Luke 7:44-47

“In this country we are not required to leave our comfortable spaces, and it is easy to create a life that is insulated, and we have not created a culture that sees it as a problem.  The reason why I’m an advocate for leaving our comfortable spaces for uncomfortable spaces is because when we are proximate is when we begin to understand our capacity to be agents of change.”

“Our homes are to be hospitals-refugees of healing radiating the light of heaven.  And our dinner tables are to be operating tables-the place where broken souls are made whole again…When we lower our defenses, when we remove our facades and our peepholes, and we begin to be truly present with one another-then the healing power of the gospel can begin its work.”
