Thoughts for a Thursday

Brennan Manning, in his gem of a book The Ragamuffin Gospel, has one of my favorite quotes about the stuttering and halting nature of discipleship of all time.  Some mental chewing gum today...
When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes.  I believe and I doubt, I hope and get discouraged I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty.  I ma trusting and suspicious.  I am honest and I still play games.  Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer. (p.22 of Multnomah's 1990 edition)
