1               A Christian is a keyhole through which other folk see God. Robert E.

Christensen 3          One on God's side is a majority.  Wendell Phillips 4            A true love of God must begin with a delight in his holiness.  Jonathan Edwards 5          God enters by a private door into every individual.  Ralph Waldo Emerson 6         Life is an adventure in forgiveness. Norman Cousins 7 Forgiveness is man's deepest need and highest achievement. Horace Bushnell
8          He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.  Edward Herbert 9           The whole of creation, with all of its laws, is a revelation of God.  Dean William Ralph Inge 10     Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.  Helen Keller 11        Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.  Saint Augustine 12      Strike from mankind the principle of faith and men would have no more history than sheep. Mark Beltare 13         The road to hell is paved with good intentions; the road to heaven is paved with good deeds.  Anonymous 14  Heaven is not to be looked upon only as the reward, but as a natural effect, of a religious life.  Joseph Addison
15           If Christ is the wisdom of God and the power of God in the experience of those who trust and love him, there needs no further argument of his divinity. Henry Ward Beecher 16      Life, that ever needs forgiveness, has for its first duty to forgive. Edward Bulwer Lytton 17            All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.  Ralph Waldo Emerson 18       True happiness is not found in any other reward than that of being united with God.

Hold on! hold fast! hold out! Patience is genius.

22         The fewer the words, the better the prayer.  Martin Luther 23 Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.  Daniel Webster 24        The measure of a Christian is not in the height of his grasp but in the depth of his love. Clarence Jordan 25   Heaven must be in me before I can be in heaven. Charles Stanford 26        The Bible is a window in this prison of hope, through which we look into eternity.  John Sullivan Dwight 27       Unless we form the habit of going to the Bible in bright moments as well as in trouble, we cannot fully respond to its consolations because we lack equilibrium between light and darkness.  Helen Keller 28         To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.  Ecclesiastes 3:1
29         If Christ is the wisdom of God and the power of God in the experience of those who trust and love him, there needs no further argument of his divinity. Henry Ward Beecher 30 Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a living presence.  Samuel Taylor Coleridge 31              I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see everything by it.        C. S. Lewis
