Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

If you have a negative feeling (worry, fear, anxiety, depression, hate, resentment, etc) and it does not go away when you meditate, you must take immeditate action... Instead of sitting down in front of that mood to wrestle with it by denials, do an heroic thing, a thing quite against your natural instincts; make yourself act quickly upon the opposite of that state... It is easy enough to act kindly if you feel kindly, the thing is to act by what you know to be right, no matter what you feel... The moment you feel any hate or fear or pride, think of the opposite and act upon it quickly. If you do thins you will find that you overcome the feeling in a wonderful way and you will have more power over the next mood. If you will make one single action you will find the whole thing has begun to change.- Adela M Curtis, The Way of Silence
