That's what makes life much more interesting. Every day becomes an adventure."

'Many sounds are uncertain, undecided, decidedly 'neutral'. God has called us to influence nations. That can never be done from a position of ambivalence and uncertainty. We must hear twice when God speaks once. We must speak assertively with the voice of Heaven. But most of all we must embrace a contagious version of unreligious Christianity that is relevant- concentrating on life above profession. Hear Loud and Clear. Speak Loud and Clear. But most of all, Live this love Loud and Clear.'
