Here's a little interview I did with Sir John Hargave on Mind Hacking. Hope you enjoy!
YOUR KIN-DOM COMES
“Your Kingdom Come” we pray each time we say the Our Father. Unlike earthly kingdoms with borders, checkpoints and boundaries, the kingdom of God knows no boundaries:

“Observe a tree, how it first reaches downwards so that it may then shoot upwards. It sinks its roots deep into the ground so that its top may reach towards the skies. Is it not from humility that it endeavours to grow? But wi...See More
BACK TO HUMILITY
Allow me to backtrack a little bit. Yesterday I posted the above quote with attribution. On Sunday, when I first heard it, I worked on the quote, the result of which was the above. As you can see I intentionally left the attribution out. I was experimenting. I used it in the context of a small group sharing, the topic of which was humility. Seeing the incongruence, everybody laughed heartily. The majority in the group spoke openly and honestly about humility and what an e...See More
