Since today is Quotable Monday (which keeps me honest in my reading, knowing that I'll have to post something earth-shattering on Monday)…..here are some things I've run across while reading Leonard Sweet's "The Gospel According To Starbucks".
On art, Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680): "Art should create stupor in the beholder."
On church, T.S. Eliot (uber-poet of the twentieth century) liked to tell of a sign outside a baker's shop advertising bread for one dollar a loaf. "A man enters the shop, hungry for bread, and imagining the fresh smell of bread hot from the oven, only to find that inside the shop all that is for sale are copies of the sign advertising bread…..the Church today is much like that shop."
Put those in your latte and let 'em brew. If you've got thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
