So, I’m sitting with a good friend and having a conversation.  Then there is a great twist of phrase, and all of a sudden I’m asking for a pad of paper and writing furiously as he repeats his saying!  He’s invited me back, but next time I have to bring my own pad of paper!

Here is a bit of the phrases I jotted down:

*  God has decided to become obvious in me (a bit about how we talk to people about the God they cannot see).

*  In our non-abilities we are called to show off God.

*  Jesus had trouble convincing most people even though he knew what the full Gospel was (on asking the question, what is the Gospel?,  and what are the implications of that?).

*  The religious institution/church of Jesus’ day was a fighting place (Jesus realized the institution of his day was contrary to what gave empowerment)
