ghandi quote

"I with very much desired to be a christian, until I met one"

quote has been assigned to ghandi and a buddhist monk at different times, so I'm not sure i have it right.

the challenge is to live in such a way that we are congruent with Jesus, and thus people find him and us compelling.

another quote helps:

GK Chesterton: "Christianity has not so much been found tested, and wanting; but untested and unexperienced and thus ignored and unwanted"

The person who desires to make a difference in the world sooner or later is confronted with the Christ. In finding Him the potential for moral grandeur and spiritual audacity becomes apparent. And if we would dare...our lives can become mythic and epic...not because we follow of myth, but because we follow a reality and truth so counter-cultural that our lives cannot help but become revolutionary.
