One of the Greatest Errors to be Dreaded...

From Ray Ortlund's Blog:

"One of the greatest errors to be dreaded and watched and prayed against is that of excessive caution, under the guise of prudence, in anxiety to avoid giving offense to worldly people who never can be reconciled, by all you can do, to anything in the shape of a revival of religion."

William C. Burns (1815-1868), Scottish minister, missionary to China, writing in The Revival of Religion, page 350.

"Lets Do Lunch..."

"A woman once told me about eh difficulties she faced as a Brit fitting into American culture. One of her struggles was with people who said, 'Let's do lunch.' She expected them to phone and arrange a date. They never did. 'Let's do lunch' was just an idiomatic way of saying farewell. We all say, 'Let's do mission,' but does it carry any more intent than 'Let's do lunch'?"
