So, is Lifehouse a Christian band?

Plato has reasoned, Darwin has investigated, Tyndall has experimented; yet the answer that comes back to our inquiry is but the faintest reverberation of the echo, What is life?

Among them is the metaphor of life as a battle.

Life House is a co-ed residential facility staffed 24-hours a day, seven days a week. During the clients' stay, individualized services are offered to men and women transitioning into or out of different levels of restrictive living. These services include day programming, interpersonal skills development, medication management/psychiatric services and help maintaining employment. The facility provides shelter and services for residents for up to two years while the residents learn the skills to live independently.

~Muriel Strode (1875–1964), , 1912


I set myself free into the blue-flowing sky,
I melt with the star-mist,
I am one with the moon's pourings.
I come limpid and easy to life,
Meeting its curves and its undulations, as the shore-line meets the sea,
As the sky meets the indenture of the hills.
~Muriel Strode (1875–1964), "Songs of Him: VII," , 1921


Life is made up of constant calls to action, and we seldom have time for more than hastily contrived answers.

Some men in their passage through life resemble a frog: they go a little and stop a little—but always by fits and starts, jerks and jumps.

~Mignon McLaughlin, , 1966


In masks outrageous and austere
The years go by in single file;
But none has merited my fear,
And none has quite escaped my smile.
~Elinor Hoyt Wylie,


To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.

Life House Now | Life Giving Church in Beaver Creek Ohio

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need—a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
You will find the boat easier to pull then, and it will not be so liable to upset, and it will not matter so much if it does upset; good, plain merchandise will stand water.

~Mike Dolan,


For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.

Life winks as it passes me by
And is gone before my own blink of eye.

Literature is mostly about having sex and not much about having children; life is the other way around.
