Geri and I realize that certain “one-liners” have emerged over the years as we (and others) teach emotionally healthy spirituality. They are helpful in providing anchors as we lead others into a deep, beneath the surface spirituality that transforms people who transform the world.
Take a look. Eva, my 20 year old daughter, refers to it as a “cheat sheet.”
- It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.
- Our being with God must be sufficient to sustain our doing for God.
- Jesus may be in your heart, but grandpa is in your bones.
- There is a big difference between being “in the world for God and being in God for the world”
- We cannot give what we do not possess.
- You don’t have to keep Sabbath; you get to keep Sabbath.
- There are no boundary breakers, only boundary makers.
- When we overfunction, doing for others what they can and should do for themselves, we perpetuate their immaturity.
- Without silence it is virtually impossible to grow in the spiritual life.
- Who you are is more important than what you do.
