Quote of the Week

"Studying about missions is different from doing missions. Hearing a sermon about doing for 'the least of these' is different from doing for the least of these. Talking about evangelism is different from doing evangelism. Many have become keepers of the aquarium instead of fishers of men. Dropping money in the offering plate to send people to Africa or the Middle East is different from interacting with and ministering to someone of another race or culture in your own community."

Chib, This isn't my quote so I can't grant permission to use it. Generally speaking, it's not necessary to ask permission to quote small segments of others' work so long as you mention their name and/or link back to the original article, both of which I've done here. You are certainly free to do the same. DS
