Zis-N-Zat From Pastor Asher

God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God

Thinking Towards Sunday

— From Albert Einstein

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

– From Saint Augustine

“Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.”

–  Edwin H. Friedman  “A Failure of Nerve: Leadership in the Age of the Quick Fix” 

“… whenever anyone is in extremis (whether it is a marital crisis, an economic crisis, a political crisis, or a health crisis), their chances of survival are far greater when their horizons are formed of projected images from their own imagination rather than being limited by what they actually see. Or, to reverse it, to the extent the horizons of individuals in extremis are limited to what they can actually see, their chances of survival are far less than if their horizons include projected images from their own imaginations. Actually, even the thinking processes that lead one to assume that one’s life situation is in extremis are partially determined by the breadth of one’s horizons at the time  –  which, of course, correlates with one’s imaginative capacity and sense of adventure.”
