First, a couple to ponder:
“Disputes between those who believe in God and those who do not often turn on the assumption by both parties that they know what they mean when they say ‘God.’ This seems unlikely, since Christians believe that we learn to use the word ‘God’ only through worship and prayer to the One we address as Father, Son, and Spirit. Such a God is identified by a story that takes time, often a lifetime, to learn.”
“As theologians, we must say more than we can be in the hope that others will make us more than we are. What is crucial is that we not write to justify the limits of our lives.”
And, a funny one:
“I do not believe in California”
