[Thus, It Is Taking More American Churches To Field One Missionary Than Churches In Other Parts Of The World. For Example, Whereas There Is One Crosscultural Missionary Supported By Every 0.7 Evangelical Churches In Singapore, By 2.1 Churches In Hong Kong, 2.4 In Albania, 2.5 In Sri Lanka, 2.6 In Mongolia, 4.2 In South Korea, 4.9 In Myanmar, And 5.3 In Senegal, In The United States The Ratio Is 7.6 Churches To One Missionary.[6] The Proper Conclusion From This Flurry Of Numbers Would Seem To Be That, While The United States Contains A Whole Lot Of Evangelical Churches, Those Churches Are Not Now As Proportionately Active In Crosscultural Missionary Activity As Many Churches In The Non-Western World. Evangelical Dynamism In These Other Churches Has Replaced, Or Is Replacing, The Evangelical Dynamism Of American Churches As The Leading Edge Of World Christian Expansion. That Expansion Seems To Be Tracking The Earlier Pattern Of American Adjustments To Christianity-after-Christendom.]

Quotes About Polished Shoes

"Our father came to sleep in our house that night. He carried a small suitcase with a black mourning suit and a pair of polished shoes. Corrigan stopped him as he made his way up the stairs. Where dyou think youre going?Our father gripped the bannister. His hands were liverspotted and I could see him trembling in his pause. Thats not your room, sad Corrigan. Our father tottered on the stairs. He took another step up. Dont, said my brother. His voice was clear, full, confidant. Our father stood stunned. He climbed one more step and then turned, descended, looked around, lost.My own sons, he said.We made a bed for him on a sofa in the living room, but even then Corrigan refused to stay under the same roof; he went walking in the direction of the city center and I wondered what alley he might be found in later that night, what fist he might walk into, whose bottle he might climb down inside." - Author: Colum McCann

Quotes About Alright

"Slowly, then all at once.Slowly, as I take my time to know the things that would endear me to you. Slowly, as I attempt to cultivate a bond I hope would never easily sever. Slowly, as I get to know all your demons, and try to decide if Im okay living with them everyday. Slowly, I also unleash my demons on you, hoping they wont make me look ugly, wouldnt make you think less of me.Slowly, as I let myself get used to the idea that you can be a possible permanent fixture in my life. Slowly, as I tell the difference between what I think I see, and whats really there. Slowly, as I find myself looking to you for reassurance that hey, Im alright. Slowly, as I find my thoughts drifting toward you when I see or hear or find things that remind me of you. Slowly, as I catch myself dedicating to you all of the pieces that Ive been writing." - Author: Nessie Q.

Quotes About Heros Journey

"A man breaking his journey between one place and another at a third place of no name, character, population or significance, sees a unicorn cross his path and disappear. That in itself is startling, but there are precedents for mystical encounters of various kinds, or to be less extreme, a choice of persuasions to put it down to fancy; until--"My God," says a second man, "I must be dreaming, I thought I saw a unicorn." At which point, a dimension is added that makes the experience as alarming as it will ever be. A third witness, you understand, adds no further dimension but only spreads it thinner, and a fourth thinner still, and the more witnesses there are the thinner it gets and the more reasonable it becomes until it is as thin as reality, the name we give to the common experience...

Quotes About Building Bridges

"This private estate was far enough away from the explosion so that its bamboos, pines, laurel, and maples were still alive, and the green place invited refugees—partly because they believed that if the Americans came back, they would bomb only buildings; partly because the foliage seemed a center of coolness and life, and the estates exquisitely precise rock gardens, with their quiet pools and arching bridges, were very Japanese, normal, secure; and also partly (according to some who were there) because of an irresistible, atavistic urge to hide under leaves." - Author: John Hersey
