Catacomb Christianity and Cathedral Christianity:

The catacombs, of course, are the legacy of a tiny persecuted band of believers, meeting in their graveyards to escape the all-seeing eye of imperial Rome. The cathedrals represent a very different turn in church history: a church that not only could grow in size but could, in fact, outgrow and outlast the Empire itself. The catacombs represent simplicity and earthiness; the cathedrals transcendence and wonder.

We need both, somehow.

One thought on “Worth a Look 5.24.12”

  1. I used to laugh at snarky lines like this, but they’ve lost their humor for me now that I’m a writer myself. When I’m brooding over an original idea, knowing that it will challenge the way people have thought, every imaginable ugly criticism runs through my head as I try to write it down. It’s paralyzing and crushing. I know some outstanding thinkers who simply will not write because they are so aware of the cruelty of our culture.

    It’s not that I don’t have a sense of humor, its that I just can’t stand to be on the other side of this.
