Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime, therefore we must be saved by hope.

Nothing which is true, or beautiful, or good, makes immediate sense in any immediate context of history, therefore we must be saved by faith.

Nothing we do however virtuous, can be accomplished alone, therefore we must be saved by love.

No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe, as for our own standpoint, therefore we must be saved by that final form of love, which is forgiveness.

Reinhold Niebuhr

This is a tune. Happy Friday people.

This afternoon’s soundtrack. Hard to believe this album has been out for 11 years. So. Good.

Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.

Low covering The Boss. This is a track.

Long, challenging trail run this morning…but the reward was well worth it.

A few years I saw Charles Bradley perform a day set on the main stage of the Sasquatch Festival. Watching him belt out this Neil Young classic like there was no tomorrow with the Columbia River Gorge in the background was quite the thing.

For language to have meaning there must be intervals of silence somewhere, to divide word from word and utterance from utterance. He who retires into silence does not necessarily hate language. Perhaps it is love and respect for language which imposes silence upon him.

I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.
