“Sufficient then for pacifying minds and for rendering certain our salvation, is the word of the gospel; in which we are not commanded to earn righteousness by works, but to embrace it, when offered gratuitously, by faith”
John Calvin – 1540

“When my daughter was dying of AIDS, she told our family gathered around her bed, “Don’t say anything. I know you love me. Just be here with me and hold my hand.” That’s a silence bite. A holy silence bite. A moment when God does all the talking and we do all the listening.”
The Rev. Dr. Homer Henderson – 2004
