The Friday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.
“The problem is that just as everything looks like a nail to a man with a hammer, once we let in our hunger for hits and comments and retweets we begin to look at the world, and our lives as fodder. Soon we find ourselves not talking about Jesus, and all He has done for us and is doing in us, because who would want to read that, but talking about all the buzz at Westboro Baptist, Mars Hill and the Institute of Basic Life Principles. To find something to say about the stories of the day we surf the interwebs reading what others have to say about the stories of the day. Which in turn feeds the same beast, and what we have is an information, sometimes misinformation, bubble.”
