    Yada, yada, you know the drill...(last one, I promise!...for a few days anyway):


    “Every day brings the Christian many hours in which he will be alone in an unchristian environment. These are the times of testing. This is the true test of meditation and true Christian community. Has the fellowship served to make the individual free, strong, and mature, or has it made him weak and dependent?...Has it transported him for a moment into a spiritual ecstasy that vanishes when everyday life returns, or has it lodged the word of God so securely and deeply in his heart that it holds and fortifies him, impelling him to active love, to obedience, to good works? Only the day can decide.”
