Who is Jesus and what does that mean for me?


  • "The Burden of the Gospels," The Way of Ignorance, by Wendell Berry
  • “Crucifixion was a Roman form of public service announcement: Do not engage in sedition as this person has, or your fate will be similar. The point of the exercise was not the death of the offender as such, but getting the attention of those watching. Crucifixion first and foremost is addressed to an audience.” – Paula Fredrickson quoted by James H. Cone, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, 26
  • "Humility is making the choice to forego your status in order to deploy your resources and influence for the good of others before yourself." - John Dickson, Humilitas, 24.
  • “Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call 'humble' nowadays: he will not be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody. Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap, who took a real interest in what you said to him. If you do dislike him, it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He will not be thinking about humility; he will not be thinking about himself at all." - C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, 128.
