Sojourners has done it again!

Daily Quote:
The Christian way is different: harder, and easier. Christ says, "Give me all. I don't want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want you.... Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked - the whole outfit. I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself: my own will shall become yours." Both harder and easier than what we are all trying to do.
--C.S Lewis
This reminds me of a discussion I had with one of H's nieces about what religion the kids would choose.

hm. harder. definitely harder. giving up is so hard. lent is coming. our fr. said in sunday's sermon that lent is a gift of the church to us, to give us a specified time to do those "i know i shoulds." i am at my core both selfish and very lazy. hard.

Love Lewis! Brilliant man. I e-mailed you this morning, I hope you get it :0)

Oh. I like the "I know I shoulds." I, for example, should go to the gym. I like to add things at lent, as opposed to taking things away.
Good to hear from you bebemiqui!
