was tidying some stuff up recently and found a few pages of quotes. many were forgettable, these were not!!!
“We often fall prey to the temptation of measuring youth ministry leadership based on communication skill, vision, enthsiasm, organisational ability, personality, gifts, raw guts. We need to be reminded of the single most essential ingredient needed for being useful to the master – “Personal Purity”. Paul Borthwick in “Feeding Your Forgotten Soul“
“Too much of our orthodoxy is correct and sound, but like words without a tune, it does not glow and burn, it does not stir the heart, it has lost its hallelujah! One man with a genuine glowing experience of God is worth a library full of arguments.” Vance Havner
“Every evangelist runs the risk that the seed of the gospel, once planted in the life of a new believer, may grow into a dynamic force which threatens to overthrow the very status quo in which the evangelist finds comfort and rest.” Jim Wallis
