- “Every single person on this planet is worth the trouble we might face in the context of sharing Christ with them”
- “It was never meant to be a prescribed time and place for us to obsess about doing the appropriate thing at the appropriate moment all while wearing an appropriate outfit.”
- “Fear and disillusionment. Courage and commitment. Intense emotion and unbridled passion. The ultimate risk of life in exchange for undeserved grace and a treasured spot in eternity.”

- “We are surrounded by a great cloud of people whose lives tell us what faith means. So let us run the race that is before us and never give up.”
