“Church can become a constant cycle of discouragement. Every Sunday, you get rightly rebuked by a chap in a checkered shirt with an ESV up here on the stage calling you to something better—and it’s right and good and godly that we do that. But deep down inside of you, there’s this hesitation, because you know the right and good and better is something you probably cannot do.” — Ross Lester
