Book cover for Russell Kirk: American Conservative
“And so I sit and wait, in patience and serenity—for the end which is no end. I turn over in my mind the various possibilities of the long journey, amusing myself with fancies that I trust are not purely fanciful. Only of this I am assured, ...more

What an odd book. I don't believe I read Brave New World in college (although it was assigned). But I have to confess reading it as an adult it was weirder than I had anticipated. I had the idea of reading Brave New World and 1984 and comparing the t ...more

An Elderly Lady is Up to No Good by Helene Tursten

“Dry leaves rustled up against the walls and skittered away. It was that time of year when it could be hot or cold from day to day; it was neither summer nor fall. An in-between, liminal time. A border.”

“America is not about unfettered freedom. America is about a particular type of liberty that has been the glory of the Western heritage: ordered liberty. Freedom without a strong moral basis ends up being an empty promise.”

“He missed you
like a fish in a bowl
misses the open sea.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

“Perhaps nothing is as subtle and deceptive as the ease with which our forms of worshipping God (reading the Bible, singing, partaking in the Lord’s Supper, serving the poor, etc.) can be used for our own self-worship. This is so subtle and deceptive that we don’t even know it is there. We can become aware of this self-worship when we pay attention to our desires. Our desires hint at subconscious beliefs we hold about life, God, and ourselves. These beliefs often surface when we enter God’s presence. In His presence we come to realize how often we relate to him as a tool or resource in our quest for happiness, fulfillment, and meaning, rather than as the Lord who calls us to worship.”
Jamin Goggin, Beloved Dust: Drawing Close to God by Discovering the Truth About Yourself

Philip Yancey
“Shouldn’t we be presenting an alternative to the prevailing culture rather than simply mimicking it? What would a church look like that created space for quietness, that bucked the celebrity trend and unplugged from noisy media, that actively resisted our consumer culture? What would worship look like if we directed it more toward God than toward our own amusement?”
Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?
