"Experience has taught me that I connect best with others when I connect with the core of myself. When I allow God to liberate me from unhealthy dependence on people, I listen more attentively, love more unselfishly, and am more compassionate and playful. I take myself less seriously, become aware that the breath of the Father is on my face."That God loves me no matter what or who I am and that by thinking otherwise I deny the entire gift of God's grace and love.
"The love of Christ embraces all
without exception."This man introduced me to the Christ outside of Christianity and for that I am forever grateful.
"The story goes that a public sinner was excommunicated and forbidden entry to the church. He took his woes to God. 'They won't let me in, Lord, becuse I am a sinner.'
'What are you complaining about?' said God. 'They won't let Me in either."So while I may abandon Christianity, I can never abandon the Christ.
"Those who have the disease
called Jesus will never be cured."Thank you Brennan for all that you have done. You will forever huant me.
