I can't think of a title for this post

"I want to simplify your lives. When others are telling you to read more, I want to tell you to read less; when others are telling you to do more, I want to tell you to do less. The world does not need more of you; it needs more of God. Your friends do not need more of you; they need more of God. And you don't need more of you; you need more of God."

Eugene Peterson, Subversive Spirituality, page 30.

I just really liked this quote. As I look at it, though, it becomes a very good excuse for not blogging much recently -- Eugene Peterson tells me a) that I need to do less and b) that you all need more of God and not mroe of me!

You're getting a lot of junk comments lately, in case you hadn't noticed. Does Blogger have a tool to remove them or ban them?

I'm glad I can do that with the click of a button.

Thanks for the comment -- I JUST finished activating that button, right before I got your comment. I shouldn't have to worry about spam anymore!
