"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

The talk by Bruggemann was excellent and eye-opening. It was, as they say, like hearing the Gospel. I have to say that the most powerful, meaningful sermons I've ever experienced in my life have come from UCC pastors. I've set foot in a UCC church only twice. The rest I've encountered here.
