"A [preacher] who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they are necessarily reflected in his theology." — BXVI
'Twas OK. I was laughing at the first paragraph - it just struck me as funny. On the whole, it read as somewhat choppy - and I heard the choppiness in the preaching, too. Lots of good stuff in there, but (and I can't believe I'm saying this) to me it came off a bit heavy-handed at times.
Wasn't happy with this one. . .it's one of those that I had to yank out by the roots over a period of hours. Have to say though that it got a very good response from the congregation.
