Quotations for Worship and Reflection

Here are some of the quotations that have made the front of the Sunday bulletin over the last few weeks:

"Two things are constantly happening in this struggle between our allegiance to God and to Caesar: first, our temptation is frequently to render to Caesar a great many things that should be rendered only to God; and second, Caesar’s temptation is always to want to be God and thereby claim our total allegiance."

--Robert McAfee Brown,
Saying Yes and Saying No:
On Rendering to God and Caesar

"Inner Strength is what is required when in the midst of turmoil we do not know what to do with our outward power and our outward might."

--Peter Gomes,
Strength for the Journey

“The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.”
