      Are you a bully? Is bullying an effective method of witnessing truth? What is the difference between persuasion and bullying?

      The patience of a Saint has been called upon!! Lots of irony in that, huh, as we spend All our time focusing solely on the Saints dont we!!

      Anyway, he is correct - if you'd like to know more say the word...get it, say the word? Ha! Have a blessed day

    “Whose work is it but your own to open your eyes? But indeed the business of the universe is to make such a fool out of you that you will know yourself for one, and begin to be wise.”
    George MacDonald, Lilith A and Lilith, 1896: A Duplex

    "We read of spiritual efforts, and our imagination makes us believe that, because we enjoy the idea of doing them, we have done them. It is so fatally easy to confuse an aesthetic appreciation of the spiritual life with the life itself--to dream that you have waked, washed, and dressed, & then to find yourself still in bed" (CS Lewis, letter to his friend Arthur Greeves dated 15 June 1930).
