Will Albright: "I wonder if God isn't instead this great music maker, teaching all creation to play and sing along to the melody of love."
Rick Barr: "In a sense, to be is to be known and to be loved."
Justin Heinzekehr: "The non-coercive God is not hovering over us with a specific set of directions but is encouraging us to tap into our own creativity without knowing where it will lead."
Tim Reddish: "Prayer makes a difference, but so do the necessary regularity of the world and every free choice humans and angels make.... It is quite legitimate to say that the Christian and the Spirit are 'co-praying'."
Scott Nelson Foster: "It is when we respond to God's call to love that God's will is done."
Sarah Lancaster: "One advantage of thinking about God as uncontrolling is that it allows and impels us to look for God in the regular events in our lives."
Bob Luhn: "It is the non-coercive, others-empowering love of God that sets a person free to be fully human--capable of loving God with one's whole being and loving one's neighbor as one's self."
Simon Hall: "If we are spiritual beings, just as much as we are physical, then our prayers matter just as much as our actions. Prayers that attune us to the heart of God. Prayers that lend our voice to God's voice..."
A BOOK TO READ SLOWLY AND SAVOR. Allow your thinking to be infused and inspired with the truth, beauty, and power of God's uncontrolling love.
