From Chris Guillebeau’s blog The Art of Nonconformity. It shocked me right into stillness, because anyone who has done any talking in their church about ‘growing’, well, shoot, this is what it always boils down to.

Chris’ blog is worth the reading. If just to see all the pictures of the awesome places he goes.
