"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

"Graded Holiness" for your Tuesday Morning

Since I'm on a roll with my outsourcing, let me recommend this video found by Thought Criminal (my Google-fu is weak, indeed).  It's similar to something I reported on in 2007 (as TC notes), but hearing Brueggeman is much better than reading someone telling you what he heard Brueggeman say.

So, again, I recommend it to you.  He may even leave out snacks. Or maybe casseroles; endless casseroles may well be the key.  :-)

(I especially like Brueggeman's reference to the "invisible God" that Israel is following out of Egypt. There are libraries of thought in that sentence alone.)

(And the video that follows after, from 2014, is worth listening to, as well.  Here it is on YouTube, if you prefer.

Casseroles definitely work. I once belonged to a very Lutheran-esque Meeting, at least where appropriate foodstuffs at worship were concerned...
