freedom and service

The Christian is a person who recognizes that our real problem is not in achieving freedom but in learning service under a better master.  The Christian realizes that every relationship that excludes God becomes oppressive. Recognizing and realizing that, we urgently want to live under the mastery of God.
~Eugene H. Peterson, in A Long Obedience in the Same Direction

This is ironic because Belinda was just encouraging us to pray for freedom for the campus this week =)
