  • Mack, don't you see how filling roles is the opposite of relationship? We want male and female to be counterparts, face-to-face equals, each unique and different, distinctive in gender but complementary, and each empowered uniquely by Sarayu from whom all true power and authority originates.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Sometimes honesty can be incredibly messy
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Each relationship between two persons is absolutely unique. That is why you cannot love two people the same. It simply is not possible. You love each person differently because of who they are and the uniqueness that they draw out of you.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • I suppose that since most of our hurts come through relationships so will our healing, and I know that grace rarely makes sense for those looking in from the outside.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Mackenzie, judgment is not about destruction, but about setting things right.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")


  • Submission is not about authority and it is not obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness does not create a relationship. Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behavior, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgment, but without true change, no real relationship can be established.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • If a rainbow makes a sound, or a flower as it grows, that was the sound of her laughter.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Once you have hierarchy you need rules to protect and administer it, and then you need law and the enforcement of the rules, and you end up with some kind of chain of command or system of order that destroys relationship rather than promotes it. Hierarchy imposes laws and rules and you end up missing the wonder of relationship that we intended for you.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • The world in many ways would be a much calmer and gentler place if women ruled. There would have been fewer children sacrificed to the gods of greed and power.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • If you and I are friends, there is an expectancy that exists within our relationship. When we see each other or are apart, there is an expectancy of being together, of laughing and talking. The expectancy has no concrete definition; it is alive and dynamic and everything that emerges from our being together is a unique gift shared by no one else.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Paradigms power perception and perceptions power emotions. Most emotions are responses to perception - what you think is true about a given situation. If your perception is false, then your emotional response to it will be false too. So check your perceptions, and beyond that check the truthfulness of your paradigms - what you believe. Just because you believe something firmly doesn't make it true. Be willing to reexamine what you believe.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Through . . . lies you try to run your life and manipulate others. . . . Lies become an inhibitor in your relationship . . . .
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness is first for you, the forgiver...to release you from something that will eat you alive; that will destroy your joy and your ability to love fully and openly. Do you think this man cares about the pain and torment you have gone through? If anything, he feeds on that knowledge. Don't you want to cut that off? And in doing so, you'll release him from a burden that he carries whether he knows it or not--acknowledges it or not.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")
