“God loves languages because God loves people and God loves to speak to people in their own language.”

Jonah –

Many churches are going through a “Joppa moment”.
There are fish that swallow us whole because we decide to go in another direction – because we flee where God is.

God is telling Jonah that God is in the city. Not to take God to the city.

“I speak in tongues: I speak in slang and I speak in seminary.”

“Much of North America suffers from an allergy – an allergy to the other.”

“Sometimes we need to be fish-food in order to be converted.”

“How dare we not love the people who God loves.”

“God is in the business of redeeming people and things that most people wouldn’t want to touch.”

God is saying, “What I have called CLEAN, let NO ONE call unclean.”

“God, help us to see – in ‘junkies’-bishops.”
