The Worship Of Man

Retriever highlighted a recent post of hers, thinking I might want to link to it. Named "Off To Church," I thought "Yeah, that's really going to bring in the crowds, eh? I'll bet no one can wait to read about her adventures there."

It is an excellent post, thoughtful and fun. The car alone is worth the click.

Two quotes:
One from Gagdad Bob riffing on Pope Benedict's, "the loss of transcendence evokes the flight to utopia..."
This is certainly how it worked for me in college. First you discredit religion, and then replace it with with a pseudo-religion that occupies the vacant spiritual territory. It took me years to undo this ironically named "higher education," which specifically forecloses the higher.
And one in Retriever's own words, finding hope through the weariness.
Church is repair long after our warranty expired.
