I came across this again as I'm working on Making Disciples. One of the things that we have seen over and over emerge from intentional discipleship is a remarkable new kind of apostolic creativity. Dorothy Sayers understood why.

She quotes A.D. Lindsey’s wonderful observation:

“The difference between ordinary people and saints is not that saints fulfill duties that ordinary men neglect. The things saints do have not usually occurred to ordinary people at all. . .’

Gracious’ conduct is like the work of an artist. It needs imagination and spontaneity. It is not the choice between presented alternatives but the creation of something new.”

The Whimsical Christian, p. 131
