Sorry I haven’t had any time to post in the last day or so, and today looks to be very busy also. Yesterday, the emergent cohort (http://nashvillecohort.blogspot.com) was interesting as always, with vigorous discussion of the nature of the gospel, evangelism, and pluralism. Last night, I went to hear David Dark (http://www.davidsarahdark.blogspot.com/) talk about Will Campbell, which was excellent – perhaps more on that if I have a moment later. Here’s just one quote from Campbell, from David’s talk, to chew on:
The church is one cat in one ditch with one nobody son-of-a-bitch trying to pull her out. (I think this is from Brother to a Dragonfly, but haven’t looked it up.)
Finally, for now, a bit from a Christmas sermon by Leo the Great (c.400-461):
If we are indeed the temple of God and if the Spirit of God lives in us, then what every believer has within himself is greater than the [light of the sun] he admires in the skies.
