Text Quotes
Spiritual growth thrives in the midst of our problems, not in their absence. Spiritual growth occurs in the trenches of life, not in the classroom.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Play is an expression of God’s presence in the world; one clear sign of God’s absence in society is the absence of playfulness and laughter.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) When we are in touch with God’s joy and peace in us, then we become whole and holy persons. Like living torches we radiate the light and heat of God’s compassionate love.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) What landed Jesus on the cross was the preposterous idea that common, ordinary, broken, screwed-up people could be godly.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Spirituality isn’t about being finished and perfect; spirituality is about trusting God in our unfinishedness.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) I can remember the night I became a Christian. And man, this weight came off of me and all that kind of stuff. What I didn’t realize was, that was just the beginning - of a huge journey.  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Pretending is the grease of non-relationships. Pretending is how you and I get through the day without ever having to know each other. When I walk in the room, you say to me, ‘How are you?’ Well, you don’t want to know. And, frankly, I don’t want to tell you. So I just say, ‘Fine,’ and you go, ‘Fine.’ And off we go  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) The power of the Church is not a parade of flawless people, but of a flawless Christ who embraces our flaws. The Church is not made up of whole people, rather of the broken people who find wholeness in a Christ who was broken for us  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) The Church is the place where the incompetent, the unfinished, and even the unhealthy are welcome. I believe Jesus agrees  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Speed damages our souls because living fast consumes every ounce of our energy. Speed has a deafening roar that drowns our the whispering voices of our souls and leaves Jesus as a diminishing speck in the rearview mirror  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Jesus cares more about desire than about competence  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Speed is not neutral. Fast living used to mean a life of debauchery; now it just means fast, but the consequences are even more serious. Speeding through life endangers our relationships and our souls  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Sin does not always drive us to drink; more often it drives us to exhaustion. Tiredness is equally as debilitating as drunkenness. Burnout is slang for an inner tiredness, a fatigue of our souls. Jesus came to forgive us all of our sins, including the sin of busyness. The problem with growth in the modern church is not the slowness of growth but the rushing of growth  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes) Voices surround us, always telling us to move faster. It may be our boss, our pastor, our parents, our wives, our husbands, our politicians, or, sadly, even ourselves. So we comply. We increase the speed. We live life in the fast lane because we have no slow lanes anymore. Every lane is fast, and the only comfort our culture can offer is more lanes and increased speed limits. The result? Too many of us are running as fast as we can, and an alarming number of us are running much faster than we can sustain  (Mike Yaconelli Quotes)
