The Hobbit and Spiritual Warfare

Like many others, I watched part one of the Hobbit this weekend, in preparation for seeing the Desolation of Smaug in theatres next weekend (a belated birthday celebration).

Here’s some wisdom from Gandalf (aka Tolkien) that I have found to be true in the world of urban missions and new monasticism. Like the saint Therese of Liseux, who knew she couldn’t do great things, but could do little things with great love, we can all be heroes in God’s epic story.
