Another gem from Jim….

November 14, 2008

 

To trust grace is to know that the world has already been saved by Jesus Christ…

Grace saves the prophetic vocation. The knowledge and experience of grace can ease the seriousness with which we tend to take ourselves. Grace can restore humility, our sense of humour, and our ability to laugh at ourselves. All regularly needed by the prophets. Only sinners make good prophets.

    Russ,
    I’ve reread the parts that I underlined first time round and dipping in here and there.
    It’s put a real smile on my face!!

    This is a great quote. I am not familiar with Wallis. Sounds like he was ahead of his time.

    I did a little research on Jim Wallis. It appears he is still more than a little active. He’s quite a busy fellow. I certainly admire his dedication to his fellow man.
