Tales from the Green Book

As always: we freaking love this book.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
-Galatians 5:22-23

An excerpt from A Guide to Prayer, "Week 6: Reading the Signs."

"The creative venture for your generation is to determine what LOVE means for a nation; what JOY is for our civilization; what the shape of PEACE is among factions of ancient animosity; how PATIENCE is found for the slow processes of justice; what constitutes KINDNESS in helping the weak, poor, and oppressed; how governments can be GENEROUS without being patronizing; how people can be FAITHFUL to their traditions while responsive to changes; how GENTLENESS orders might to combat wrong; and how nations, civilizations, societies, governments, armies, peoples, and factions, as well as yourselves individually can exercise SELF-CONTROL in the face of enormous insecurity and competition."
-Robert Cummings Neville, The God Who Beckons
