More Epiphanies

Since I’ve been reading Epiphanies, a few more nuggets.

A quote distinguishing apologetics from gratitude: “To stand on one’s legs and prove God’s existence is a very different thing from going on one’s knees and thanking God.” Kierkegaard

There is a brief discussion comparing the church to a circus (a rather curious metaphor, to be sure). It is a place of complexity, humor, pathos, glitter magic. It is filled with inconsistencies, foolishness, etc.;- but is meant to be enjoyed.

On humor: “Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies.” EB White

Joke about the favorite Bible story of a child – where Jesus loafs and fishes. Uses this to emphasize work and rest/leisure are both worthwhile.
