Quotes by Martin E. Marty  (?)

“To give the whole store away to match what this year's market says the unchurched want is to have the people who know least about the faith determine most about its expression.”
Martin E. Marty

“Hospitality is a word used to describe a human behavior that has the potential to bring about real-understanding among people who do not share a common faith or culture.”
Martin Marty

“Getting closer to home, is it a fully satisfying repentance if we only deal with the past, which cannot be changed? “Alas, what did I do?” I don’t think so. Believers get closer to repentance instead by asking, “Alas, what kind of person was I that I could do that?”
Martin E. Marty, October 31, 1517: Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the World
