Becoming Channels For God’s Light …

Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.
― Richard Rohr

Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way. But if you hold it up against the light of God’s goodness, it shines and turns
transparent, radiant and bright. And then you ask yourself in amazement: Is this really my own life I see before me?
— Albert Schweitzer

As we become purer channels for God’s light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world. A miracle worker is not geared toward fighting the world that is, but toward creating the world that could be.
— Marianne Williamson

The most amazing fact about Jesus, unlike almost any other religious founder, is that he found God in disorder and imperfection — and told us that we must do the same or we would never be content on this earth.

The morning glories and the sunflowers turn naturally toward the light, but we have to be taught, it seems.
― Richard Rohr
