Quotations from The Beggar’s Table Church Site

“The secret of the great scientists was the gift of making themselves strange to the familiar.  We must learn to take the present world, its assumptions and cliches, and stand back and say, ‘is that truly so?’”

-Lesslie Newbigin

“To make sense of and celebrate  a beautiful world through the production of artifacts that are themselves beautiful is part of the call to be stewards of creation.  Genuine art is thus itself a response to the beauty of creation, which itself is a pointer to the beauty of God.”

– N.T. Wright

“Sooner or later, if we are serious about growing up in Christ, we have to deal with the church.”

-Eugene Peterson

“Great theology is always a kind of giant and intricate poetry, like epic or saga.”

-Marilynne Robinson

“You are meant to Deepen.”

-Madeleine L’Engle
