[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.]

Ibn Hazm Quotes

"Do not use your energy except for a cause more noble than yourself. Such a cause cannot be found except in Almighty God Himself: to preach the truth, to defend womanhood, to repel humiliation which your Creator has not imposed upon you, to help the oppressed. Anyone who uses his energy for the sake of the vanities of the world is like someone who exchanges gemstones for gravel. There is no nobility in anyone who lacks faith. The wise man knows that the only fitting price for his soul is a place in Paradise..."

Effrosyni Moschoudi Quotes

"There were nights for instance, especially in August, where the view of the full moon from the top of the Acropolis hill or from a high terrace could steal your breath away. The moon would slide over the clouds like a seducing princess dressed in her finest silvery silk. And the sky would be full of stars that trembled feebly, like servants that bowed before her. During those nights under the light of the August full moon, the city of Athens would become an enchanted kingdom that slept lazily under the sweet light of its ethereal mistress."

Quotes About Worn Books

"I probably coughed self-pityingly in response, little aware that I was about to cross a tremendous threshold beyond which there would be no return, that in my hands I held an object whose simple appearance belied its profound power. All true readers have a book, a moment, like the one I describe, and when Mum offered me that much-read library copy mine was upon me. For although I didnt know it then, after falling deep inside the world of the Mud Man, real life was never going to be able to compete with fiction again. Ive been grateful to Miss Perry ever sense, for when she handed that novel over the counter and urged my harried mother to pass it on to me, shed either confused me with a much older child or else shed glimpsed deep inside my soul and perceived a hole that needed filling. Ive always chosen to believe the latter. After all, its the librarians sworn purpose to bring books together with their one true reader." - Author: Kate Morton
