✍️ NOTES
“The nearness of God is by definition invisible. What, then, would be visible? Only the practical evidence of the kind of society that was built on God’s righteous laws. There is a vital link between the invisible religious claims of the people of God…and their visible practical social ethic. The world will be interested in the first only when it sees the second.” — Christopher J.H. Wright

“the world will see no reason to pay any attention to our claims about our invisible God, however much we boast of his alleged nearness to us…if it sees no difference between the lives of those who make such claims and those who do not.” — Christopher J.H. Wright

Slide 3

Leviticus 19.9-10:
“When you reap the harvest of your land, each of you will not finish off harvesting the side of your field, and you will not gather the gleanings of your harvest or scour your vineyard’s windfall. You are to leave them for the humble and for the resident.”

Leviticus 23.22:
“When you reap the harvest of your land, each of you will not finish off harvesting the edge of your field and you will not gather the gleanings of your harvest. You will leave them for the humble and the resident.”

“We believe that what we possess we don’t ultimately own. God is merely entrusting it to us. And one of the conditions of that trust is that we share what we have with those who have less. So, if you don’t give to people in need, you can hardly call yourself a Jew. Even the most unbelieving Jew knows that.” — Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

Slide 5

“Everyone wants a revolution. No one wants to do the dishes.”
“If God doesn’t rule your mundane, then he doesn’t rule you. Because that’s where you live.”

“God travels wonderful ways with human beings, but he does not comply with the views and opinions of people. God does not go the way that people want to prescribe for him; rather, his way is beyond all comprehension, free and self-determined beyond all proof. Where reason is indignant, where our nature rebels, where our piety anxiously keeps us away: that is precisely where God loves to be…God is not ashamed of the lowliness of human beings. God marches right in. He chooses people as his instruments and performs his wonders where one would least expect them. God is near to lowliness; he loves the lost, the neglected, the unseemly, the excluded, the weak and broken.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“We want life to have meaning, we want fulfillment, healing and even ecstasy, but the human paradox is that we find these things by starting where we are. . . . We must look for blessings to come from unlikely, everyday places.” — Kathleen Norris

“Occasionally, even today, you come across certain people who seem to possess an impressive inner cohesion. They are not leading fragmented, scattershot lives. They have achieved inner integration. They are calm, settled, and rooted. They are not blown off course by storms. They don’t crumble in adversity. Their minds are consistent and their hearts are dependable. Their virtues are not the blooming virtues you see in smart college students; they are the ripening virtues you see in people who have lived a little and have learned from joy and pain.” — David Brooks

Points:
* The God of the Mundane
* Reputation is Formed in the Crucible of Struggle
* All are Invited to Find Refuge in the Shadow of God’s Wings
* Restoring Vision for God: Provision, Protection, Promise
