Great Quote

David Foster is pastor of The Gathering in Nashville, TN.  His blog has quickly become one of my favorite “must reads.”  Recently, he said:

Religion is about drawing smaller boxes. Christianity is about drawing bigger circles. Religion is about who is out. It’s about lines and boundaries of those who stand on one side or the other. Christianity, on the other hand, is about drawing circles as is seen in the command of Jesus, to go out in the highways and hedges and compel anyone who would be willing to come in. It was also affirmed in many of his stories. This is a “whosoever will” message and should be opened up.
