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.”
