[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.]

Don Richard Riso Quotes

"Self-acceptance is a way of viewing oneself compassionately, without condemnation or justification. It is a starting point in life which makes other things possible. It celebrates the fullness of joy of being alive and of being who we are: accepting ourselves, however, does not mean embracing our neuroses or bad habits and celebrating them as if they were virtues. On the contrary, self-acceptance involves loving ourselves enough to accept painful truths about ourselves. . . . Self-acceptance is, at its simplest, the experience of ones self, here and now, as a complete human being, with all the glories and problems that condition entails."

Quotes About Pregnant And Single

"For each self-criticism, there were many criticisms. My mothers two comrades insisted that she had behaved in a bourgeois manner. They said she had not wanted to go to the country to help collect food; when she pointed out that she had gone, in line with the Partys wishes, they retorted: "Ah, but you didnt really want to go." Then they accused her of having enjoyed privileged food cooked, moreover, by her mother at home and of succumbing to illness more than most pregnant women. Mrs. Mi also criticized her because her mother had made clothes for the baby. "Who ever heard of a baby wearing new clothes?"she said. "Such a bourgeois waste! Why cant she just wrap the baby up in old clothes like everyone else?" The fact that my mother had shown her sadness that my grandmother had to leave was singled out as definitive proof that she put family first," a serious offense." - Author: Jung Chang

Quotes About Explaining Art

"[The Head of Radio Three] had been ensnared by the Music Director of the college and a Professor of Philosophy. These two were busy explaining to the harassed man that the phrase "too much Mozart" was, given any reasonable definition of those three words, an inherently self-contradictory expression, and that any sentence which contained such a phrase would be thereby rendered meaningless and could not, consequently, be advanced as part of an argument in favour of any given programme-scheduling strategy." - Author: Douglas Adams

Quotes About Red Shoes

"The fog turned a strange yellow, then orange, then black. The gilded winged statue Victory at Buckingham Palace retreated into mist. St. Pauls was a hazy outline, ghostlike in the gloom. La Traviata at the Sadlers Wells theatre was terminated midway because the audience could no longer see the singers on stage. Pedestrians noticed how everything below the waist disappeared. Knees, shoes, dogs became indistinguishable. The Great Smog was days and nights of people and things passing out of sight and existence. It seemed a fitting time for a mother to evaporate." - Author: Kyo Maclear

Quotes About Formidable

"Sartre, in his memoirs, confessed to much the same experience. "Like Plato, I passed from knowledge to its subject.

It was in books that I encountered the universe: digested, classified, labelled, mediated, still formidable." - Author: Alberto Manguel

Quotes About Emerging Leaders

"When forced to survive in an apocalyptic world, there are some characters that embrace their higher selves with some emerging as natural born leaders, and others succumb to their more base and primal selves and basically transform into savages.
