Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Frederick Buechner
#1. We are above all things loved--that is the good news of the gospel--and loved not just the way we turn up on Sundays in our best clothes and on our best behavior and with our best feet forward, but loved as we alone know ourselves to be, the weakest and shabbiest of what we are along with the strongest and gladdest. To come together as people who believe that just maybe this gospel is actually true should be to come together like people who have just won the Irish Sweepstakes. It should have us throwing our arms around each other like people who have just discovered that every single man and woman in those pews is not just another familiar or unfamiliar face but is our long-lost brother and our long-lost sister because despite the fact that we have all walked in different gardens and knelt at different graves, we have all, humanly speaking, come from the same place and are heading out into the same blessed mystery that awaits us all. This is the joy that is so apt to be missing, and missing not just from church but from our own lives--the joy of not just managing to believe at least part of the time that it is true that life is holy, but of actually running into that holiness head-on. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by William Shakespeare
#2. There's neither honesty, manhood, nor good fellowship in thee. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#3. At that moment there was a knock on the door, and Sam came in. He ran to Frodo and took his left hand, awkwardly and shyly. He stroked it gently and then he blushed and turned hastily away. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Bonar Law
#4. We must continue in prayer if we are to get an outpouring of the Spirit. Christ says there are some things we shall not get, unless we pray and fast, yes, "prayer and fasting." We must control the flesh and abstain from whatever hinders direct fellowship with God. #Quote by Bonar Law
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Richard Blackaby
#5. When God has access to our heart, mind, and soul through years of fellowship and worship, He allows us to see more of His activity and to be more involved in His miraculous work. #Quote by Richard Blackaby
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#6. The first volume, The Fellowship of the Ring, was published in Great Britain by the London firm George Allen & Unwin on 29 July 1954; an American edition followed on 21 October of the same year, published #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#7. It seems that in the kingdom of Heaven, the cosmic lottery works in reverse; in the kingdom of Heaven, all of our notions of the lucky and the unlucky, the blessed and the cursed, the haves and the have-nots, are turned upside down. In the kingdom of Heaven, the last will be first and the first will be last. In India, I realised that while the poor and oppressed certainly deserve my compassion and help, they do not need my pity. Widows and orphans and lepers and untouchables enjoy special access to the Gospel that I do not have. They benefit immediately from the Good News that freedom is found not in retribution but in forgiveness, that real power belongs not to the strong but to the merciful, that joy comes not from wealth but from generosity. The rest of us have to get used to the idea that we cannot purchase love or fight for peace or find happiness in high positions. Those of us who have never suffered are at a disadvantage because Jesus invites His followers to fellowship in His suffering. In fact, the first thing Jesus did in His sermon on the mount was to mess with our assumptions about the cosmic lottery. In Luke's account, Jesus says, "Blessed are you who are poor for yours is the Kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort. Woe to you who are well-fed now, for you will go hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you wi #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Walter J. Chantry
#8. Self-denial is the birth pang of spiritual joy. No woman seeks birth pangs, but she willingly endures them for the pleasure of cradling an infant in her arms. It is because of the sheer delight of living for the glory of Jehovah and the satisfaction of dwelling in the presence of His majestic fellowship that Christians submit to the agonies of self-denial. #Quote by Walter J. Chantry
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by John Piper
#9. There will be no danger of idolatry. The earth and the heavens and all things will declare the glory of God, and the essence of our joy in them will be joy in him. What makes our reward truly great is the greater fullness of our fellowship with God. #Quote by John Piper
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Kay Robertson
#10. Robertsons love Sundays! The most important thing we do is gather together with our church family for worship, teaching, and fellowship. After church, we like to have a nice lunch of roast, vegetables, and definitely rolls or biscuits. And I love catching a nap when I can. #Quote by Kay Robertson
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Kevin Roose
#11. Fellowship" is a Christianspeak for "flirt with unsuccessfully". #Quote by Kevin Roose
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Dallas Willard
#12. My central claim is that we become like Christ by doing one thing-by following Him in the overall style of life He chose for Himself. If we have faith in Christ, we must believe that He knew how to live. We can, through faith and grace, become like Christ by practicing the types of activities He engaged in, by arranging our whole lives around the activities He Himself practiced in order to remain constantly at home in the fellowship of the Father. #Quote by Dallas Willard
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by L. P. Jacks
#13. In its essence the Gospel is a call to make the experiment of comradeship, the experiment of fellowship, the experiment of trusting the heart of things, throwing self-care to the winds, in the sure and certain faith that you will not be deserted, forsaken nor betrayed, and that your ultimate interests are perfectly secure in the hands of the Great Companion. This insight is the center, the kernel, the growing point of the Christian religion, which, when we have it, all else is secure, and when we have it not, all else is precarious. #Quote by L. P. Jacks
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#14. No matter how goofy or insignificant your church may seem, fellowship in that body of believers is fellowship with God. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Duke Kahanamoku
#15. In Hawaii, we greet friends, loved ones or strangers with Aloha, which means love. Aloha is the key word to the universal spirit of real hospitality, which makes Hawaii renowned as the world's center of understanding and fellowship. Try meeting or leaving people with Aloha. You'll be surprised by their reaction. I believe it and it is my creed. Aloha to you. #Quote by Duke Kahanamoku
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Jean Vanier
#16. Individualistic material progress and the desire to gain prestige by coming out on top have taken over from the sense of fellowship, compassion and community. Now people live more or less on their own in a small house, jealously guarding their goods and planning to acquire more, with a notice on the gate that says, 'Beware of the Dog. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by D.L. Moody
#17. It may not be an easy thing to live in sweet fellowship with all those with whom we come in contact; but that is what the grace of God is given to us for. #Quote by D.L. Moody
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Geoffrey Harvey
#18. However, for Hardy the possibility of poetry's traditional function of transcendence remains, but in a more limited form. In Hardy's work the poet transcends himself towards humanity, affirming the central values of loving-kindness and fellowship. #Quote by Geoffrey Harvey
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Rick Warren
#19. He (God) usually prefers to work through people rather than perform miracles, so that we will depend on each other for fellowship. #Quote by Rick Warren
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
#20. Further strengthenings of the self-centered instinct for survival recruit even greater numbers of people into some sort of ring of fellowship (church or gender, red state or blue) by populating the terra incognita outside the ring with enough barbarians to verify the existence of a civilization within
to define the preferred stock by what, as all good people agree, it decidedly is not. #Quote by Lewis H. Lapham
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#21. There is darkness there that never sleeps. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by George Eliot
#22. But old Christmas smiled as he laid this cruel-seeming spell on the out-door world, for he meant to light up the home with new brightness, to deepen all the richness of in-door colour, and give a keener edge of delight to the warm fragrance of food: he meant to prepare a sweet imprisonment that would strengthen the primitive fellowship of kindred,and make the sunshine of familiar human faces as welcome as the hidden day-star. His kindness fell but hardly on the homeless
fell but hardly on the homes where the hearth was not very warm, and where the food had little fragrance, where the human faces had no sunshine in them,but rather the leaden, blank-eyed gaze of unexpectant want. But the fine old season meant well; and if he has not learnt the secret how to bless men impartially, it is because his father Time, with unrelenting purpose, still hides that secret in his own mighty, slow-beating heart. #Quote by George Eliot
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Billy Graham
#23. This "I" was made in the image of God for fellowship with God. Without God it is miserable, empty, confused, and frustrated. Without God life has no meaning; but with God at its center there is life, an inner strength and peace, a deep satisfaction, an unfading joy known only to those who know Jesus Christ. #Quote by Billy Graham
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Jane Ellen Harrison
#24. Greek writers of the fifth century B.C. have a way of speaking of, an attitude towards, religion, as though it were wholly a thing of joyful confidence, a friendly fellowship with the gods, whose service is but a high festival for man. In Homer sacrifice is but, as it were, the signal for a banquet of abundant roast flesh and sweet wine; we hear nothing of fasting, of cleansing, and atonement. This we might perhaps explain as part of the general splendid unreality of the heroic saga, but sober historians of the fifth century B.C. express the same spirit. Thucydides is assuredly by nature no reveller, yet religion is to him in the main 'a rest from toil.' He makes Pericles say: 'Moreover we have provided for our spirit very many opportunities of recreation, by the celebration of games and sacrifices throughout the year. #Quote by Jane Ellen Harrison
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Jerry Bridges
#25. Whether fellowship is perceived as participation or partnership, in either case it implies a responsibility to fulfill our function in the body. We usually don't think of fellowship in terms of fulfilling a responsibility, but that is because we have lost sight of the biblical meaning of fellowship. Fellowship is not just a social privilege to enjoy; it is more basically a responsibility to assume. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#26. God loves the church with a love too deep for human imagination: He loves her with all His infinite heart. Therefore let her sons be of good courage; she cannot be far from prosperity. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Oswald Chambers
#27. a full and overflowing life does not rest in bodily health, in circumstances, nor even in seeing God's work succeed, but in the perfect understanding of God, and in the same fellowship and oneness with Him that Jesus Himself enjoyed. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.G. Holland
#28. To labor rightly and earnestly is to walk in the golden track that leads to God. It is to adopt the regimen of manhood and womanhood. It is to come into sympathy with the great struggle of humanity toward perfection. It is to adopt the fellowship of all the great and good the world has ever known. #Quote by J.G. Holland
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#29. The grace of service is the spirit of belonging. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Witness Lee
#30. Calling on the name of the Lord follows the building up of an altar to the very God who has appeared to us. In the church life, under the oak of Moreh, we have the intimate appearing of the Lord. What shall we do in response to this? We should build an altar to Him and put everything we are and have on the altar. We need to tell the Lord that everything we are and have is for Him, and then we need to call on the name of the Lord to [549] maintain a deeper, richer, and more intimate fellowship with Him. #Quote by Witness Lee
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#31. Though he walked and breathed, and about him living leaves and flowers were stirred by the same cool wind as fanned his face, Frodo felt he was in a timeless land that did not fade or change or fall into forgetfulness. When he had gone and passed again into the outer world, still Frodo the wanderer from the Shire would walk there, upon the grass among elanor and niphredil in fair Lothlorien #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.P. Moreland
#32. We need to admit the mind into Christian fellowship again. We need the mind disciplined in Christ, enlightened by faith, passionate for God and his creation, to be let loose in the world. #Quote by J.P. Moreland
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Thomas Malory
#33. And much more am I sorrier for my good knights' loss than for the loss of my fair queen; for queens I might have enough, but such a fellowship of good knights shall never be together in no company. #Quote by Thomas Malory
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#34. Fair lady!' said Frodo again after a while. 'Tell me, if my asking does not seem foolish, who is Tom Bombadil?'
'He is,' said Goldberry, staying her swift movements and smiling. Frodo looked at her questioningly. 'He is, as you have seen him,' she said in answer to his look. 'He is the Master of wood, water, and hill. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Harold Bell Wright
#35. There is a bond of fellowship in sorrow that knows no conventionality. #Quote by Harold Bell Wright
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#36. That the printer had quietly reset The Fellowship of the Ring, and that copies had been issued without proof having been read by the author, never became known to Tolkien; while his publisher, Rayner Unwin, learned of it only thirty-eight years after the fact. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Murnaghan Fellowship quotes by Oswald Chambers
#37. Why shouldn't we experience heartbreak? Through those doorways God is opening up ways of fellowship with His Son. Most of us collapse at the first grip of pain. We sit down at the door of God's purpose and enter a slow death through self-pity. And all the so-called Christian sympathy of others helps us to our deathbed. But God will not. He comes with the grip of the pierced hand of His Son, as if to say, "Enter into fellowship with Me; arise and shine." If God can accomplish His purposes in this world through a broken heart, then why not thank Him for breaking yours? #Quote by Oswald Chambers
