Richard J. Foster Quote: “Celebration comes when the common features of life are redeemed.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “There is a need today for what I call prophetic simplicity. We need voices of dissent that point to another way, creative models that take exception to the givens of society.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “It is one thing to act like a servant; it is quite another to be a servant.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “It is important to recognize this fact and be easy with yourself. This time will pass – sooner than you think.

Richard J. Foster Quote: “The mind will always take on an order conforming to that upon which it concentrates.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “A farmer is helpless to grow grain; all he can do is provide the right conditions for the growing of grain. He cultivates the ground, he plants the seed, he waters the plants, and then the natural forces of the earth take over and up comes the grain... This is the way it is with the Spiritual Disciplines – they are a way of sowing to the Spirit... By themselves the Spiritual Disciplines can do nothing; they can only get us to the place where something can be done.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Children do not find it difficult or complicated to talk to their parents, nor do they feel embarrassed to bring the simplest need to their attention. Neither should we hesitate to bring the simplest requests confidently to the Father.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Confession is a difficult discipline for us, because we all too often view the believing community as a fellowship of saints before we see it as a fellowship of sinners.

Richard J. Foster Quote: “When we despair of gaining inner transformation through human powers of will and determination, we are open to a wonderful new realization: inner righteousness is a gift from God to be graciously received.

We cannot attain or earn this righteousness of the kingdom of God; it is a grace that is given.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is seeing His greatness to the extent we can receive it.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Jesus Christ and all the writers of the New Testament call us to break free of mammon lust and live in joyous trust... They point us toward a way of living in which everything we have we receive as a gift, and everything we have is cared for by God, and everything we have is available to others when it is right and good. This reality frames the heart of Christian simplicity. It is the means of liberation and power to do what is right and to overcome the forces of fear and avarice.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Cause every task of your day to be a sacred ministry to the Lord. however mundane your duties, for you they are a sacrament.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “We do not have to have the correct answers to listen well. In fact, often the correct answers are a hindrance to listening well, for we become more anxious to give the correct answer than to hear.”

Richard J. Foster Quote: “If we are a people rich in social relationships, we are rich indeed. Whenever we develop significant friendships with those who are not like us culturally, we become broader, wiser persons.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In contemporary society our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “It is precisely in the “slop-bucket job” – the work that we abhor – where we will find God the most. We do not need to have good feelings or a warm glow in order to do work for the glory of God. All good work is pleasing to the Father. Even the jobs that seem meaningless and mindless to us are highly valued in the order of the kingdom of God. God values the ordinary.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The Bible is the loving heart of God made visible and plain. And receiving this message of exquisite love is the great privilege of all who long for life with God.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Do we see a college education, for example, as a ticket to privilege or as a training for service to the needy? What do we teach our teenagers in this matter? Do we urge them to enter college because it will better equip them to serve? Or do we try to bribe them with promises of future status and salary increases? No wonder they graduate more deeply concerned about their standard of living than about suffering humanity. As.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “I want to mention one other reason why we shy away from commitment. It is, very simply, the fear that we will not be able to fulfill our covenant. We may have made commitments in the past that we were not able to fulfill – perhaps a marriage vow or a promise to our children. Or it could have been something far more simple – a pledge to be diligent in devotional reading, for example.”

Richard J. Foster Quote: “Through prayer and study, worship and service, we regularly digest God’s word into the core of our being, where it feeds and transforms us. Continue.”

Richard J. Foster Quote: “Darkness is a definite experience of prayer. It is to be expected, even embraced.”

Richard J. Foster Quote: “God’s blessing is not for personal aggrandizement, but to benefit and bless all the peoples of the earth. To understand the distinction makes all the difference in the world. The theology of wealth says, ‘I give so that I can get.’ Christian simplicity says, ‘I get so that I can give.’ The difference is profound.”

Give me only a love for you, and the gift of your grace; then I am rich enough, and ask for nothing more. – St. Ignatius of Loyola.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “If we are to progress in the spiritual walk so that the Disciplines are a blessing and not a curse, we must come to the place in our lives where we can lay down the everlasting burden of always needing to manage others.”
