“Christianity’s promises of the present presence and apprehension of God are not simple. In many ways, it seems to me that neither scripture nor recorded experience gives a coherent, teachable view of the subject… What we do know is that from Job to David to Jesus to Teresa to Jack Lewis […], those who belong to God and have His Spirit go through times, even entire chapters of life, where Godâ€™s presence does not come in simple, ‘felt’ ways. God seems to be hiding; to be purposely staying out of reach and out of touch. To what end? For what purpose?” (>>)
“The primary benefits of a position in Senior Management are increased status and increased salary. The disadvantages are decreased free time and increased stress.

“Only the faultless has a right to look for faults in others. No man has a right to criticize another man unless he is prepared at least to try to do the thing he criticizes better. Every Saturday the football terracings are full of people who are violent critics, and who would yet make a pretty poor show if they themselves were to descend to the arena. Every association and every Church is full of people who are prepared to criticize from the body of the hall, or even from an arm-chair, but who would never dream of taking office themselves. The world is full of people who claim the right to be extremely vocal in criticism and totally exempt from action.
“No man has a right to criticize others unless he is prepared to venture himself in the same situation. No man is good enough to criticize his fellow-men.
“We have quite enough to do to rectify our own lives without seeking censoriously to rectify the lives of others. We would do well to concentrate on our own faults, and to leave the faults of others to God.” (>>)
