    Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love. (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

    Drake's realtime active faith is an example to all believers.
    I haven't personally sunk any realtime Catholic ships, but I enjoy sinking foolish religious theologies. And I also love to sail on the sea of faith, driven before the wind of the spirit.
    Awesome prayer!!!

    I feel that my user name is very special. It means "victory." I like it because it is found in the new Testament Greek, koine, language. Here is a page about my name and demonstrates to you how to pronounce it.

    Years ago, in my twenties, I read the book, "Sometimes the Stones are Very Lively", by Jean Shaw. I am sure you can still get it at Amazon, these days! In the book she tells of her time spent as a member of a church filled with a motley bunch, all with their strong giftings and with their weaknesses and how the church itself fared as a living organism in the Body of Christ. It was very simply written, yet comical in many places!

    1 Peter 2:5 is, of course, the emphasis:
    And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.

    So, when it came time for me to come up with a user name, I realized that the Body of Christ, even on-line, consists of all sorts: mature, immature, strong, weak, and so many gifts and abilities mixed in, and I thought that we, as living stones, would have among them some more livelier than others! Hopefully, I would be considered one of those!

    I'm pretty sure you'll find fuego in the Spanish language Bible.
