A Link… and a Quote
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my post “Pockets” has been featured this month over at High Calling’s “Around the Network.” It’s always nice to be recognized—especially in the context of writers and thinkers whose work you respect and admire. Be sure to check out some of the other posts that are highlighted as well. I’ve only made it through a few so far this morning, but I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated each contribution I have read.
Incidentally, I have been thoroughly enjoying my trip through Eric Metaxas’s new biography on the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I developed a deep appreciation for the life and work of Bonhoeffer a few years ago during a graduate seminar devoted to him, and my admiration for him is only growing as I make my way through this fine book. In keeping with the theme of “Pockets,” here’s a quote from a lecture by then 22 year-old Dietrich Bonhoeffer to a group of German high school students living in Barcelona in 1928:
Christianity preaches the infinite worth of that which is seemingly worthless and the infinite worthlessness of that which is seemingly so valued.
