The In-Between is a call to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives. Can we embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane - what lies in between the "major" moments?

Moments of breakthrough are not where life's greatest transformation happens; the stuff that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It's the bus stops and layovers and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better people.

What are good quotes from The In-Between?

“The big moments are the tiny moments. The breakthroughs are often silent, and they happen in the most unassuming places.”

“the wait sometimes is essential to appreciate the gifts that follow, no matter how much we may resent the process.”

“Watching a tree grow will likely drive you crazy. It’s a boring process if you stand there, impatiently tapping your foot, waiting for it to do something. But if you step away and come back later, you’ll be surprised to see something beautiful emerge. The fact is the plant is doing something: it’s growing. Just not as quickly as you might like. Our culture has conditioned us to expect instant results and overnight success; this impatience runs so rampant that we dress it up in terms like “efficiency” and “productivity.” But really what’s happening is we are conditioning ourselves to get what we want now, all the time. This mindset robs us of the lessons that waiting can teach us, causing us to miss out on the slow but important stuff of life.”

“A life filled with movement, with constant motion and no rest stops, isn’t a life at all. It’s tourism.”

“The good life comes like most good things—unexpectedly—in moments that are fading away faster than we realize. These are the moments that take our time but don’t demand our attention. When we miss them, they’re gone. In those times especially, we would do well to slow down and be present, because we won’t get them back.”

“Our journey is full of rest stops- park benches and airport terminals- that signal the arrival of things we anticipate. Sometimes, they´re worth the wait; other times, the glory doesn’t shine quite like wed hope. Regardless, we need to learn to live in this tension, to appreciate what we have and still hope for.”

“And as we embrace the wait, we learn to appreciate the delays and postponements that teach us some things in life are worth waiting for.”

“Many of us are speeding up and skipping over, missing the important as we scan for the urgent. The irony is that in our anxiety toward not missing out, we are losing the most meaningful moments of life.”

“Home is the place where we sometimes hurt the ones we love, but the back door is always open—and there is always a seat at the table. We have a choice where we put our hearts and lay our heads, but home is where it’s always been. Home is home—not necessarily a location, but more than a feeling. It’s the place where we are loved, even when that love is complicated and messy but still sets a place at the table for you.”

“But many of us fail to recognize that the best moments are the ones happening right now.”

“every moment is a chance to choose.”

“The good life comes like most good things-unexpectedly-in moments that are fading away faster than we realize. These are the moments that take our time but don’t demand our attention. When we miss them, they´re gone. In those times especially, we would do well to slow down and be present, because we won't get them back.”
