Here are the quotes I used on Sunday in worship about...Worship!
Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are like half-hearted creatures who fool about with sex and drink and ambition when infinite joy is offered us. We are like children who would rather go on making mud-pies in a slum because we cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased.
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
Our century is probably more religious than any other. How could it fail to be, with such problems to be solved? The only trouble is that it has not yet found a God it can adore.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
From the Garden onward, evil drives us to fixate on what is small and insignificant- to lose life not to gain it; to become people of small soul, not great. We fiddle with the petty. We are drawn to ever smaller appetites in the name of fashion, competition, power and addiction. Our world easily shrinks down to our size. Sin diminishes our ability to see, desire, or imagine real goodness.
Mark Labbarton, The Dangerous Act of Worship
