Quotidian means commonplace or everyday. "For by grace you are saved." Ephesians 2:5
Thanks for the link. I absolutely agree with the thoughts of your vice moderator. The teachings, ministry and life of Jesus has been minimalized or in some traditions disregarded all together. I make a point of preaching about Jesus with every sermon I deliver.
FWIW, I have come across several CIFs that find it necessary to state "relationship with Jesus Christ" (in some wording or another) as a qualification. I guess they've learned it cannot be assumed.
I like what Wade said: "I believe that Jesus Christ holds us together despite our differences."Several months ago, J and I were looking at a new church website that had sent a mailer to our house and it took us several layers into the web before we could find Jesus' name. The harder we looked, the more amazed we were.I just finished reading "Blue Like Jazz" by Donald Miller and I think this quote relates to our deepest feelings about Jesus: "...the trouble with deep belief is that it costs something. And there is something inside me, some selfish beast of a subtle thing that doesn't like the truth at all because it carries responsibility and if I actually believe these things I have to do something about them."(I wrote "ouch" in the blank spot next to that paragraph in the book!)
