A cheerful revolt

Here’s a great quote from writer of the spiritual life, Richard Foster:

“Joy, not grit, is the hallmark of holy obedience. We need to be light-hearted in what we do to avoid taking ourselves too seriously. It is a cheerful revolt against self and pride.”

Not much time to write – I’m off to the Calgary Folk Music Festival tonight!
