Text Quotes
When serious people of good faith disagree, they’ve got to go back into the narratives and come at it again. One of the problems in the church is that people are not willing to do that. People have arrived at a place where they think they have got the answer.  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) The Eucharist has been preempted and redefined in dualistic thinking that leaves the status quo of the world untouched, so congregations can take the meal without raising questions of violence; the outcome is a colonized imagination that is drained of dangerous hope.  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) We pray because our life comes from God and we yield it back in prayer. Prayer is a great antidote to the illusion that we are self-made  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) There are buoyant powers of healing at work in the world that do not depend on us, that we need not finance or keep functioning and that are not at our disposal  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Give us courage for your easy burden, so to live untaxed lives  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Sabbath is the celebration of life beyond and outside productivity  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Sabbath is not simply the pause that refreshes. It is the pause that transforms  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) God will recruit as necessary from the human cast in order to reorder human history  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) We now know that human transformation does not happen through didacticism or through excessive certitude, but through the playful entertainment of another scripting of reality that may subvert the old given text and its interpretation and lead to the embrace of an alternative text and its redescription of reality  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Compassion constitutes a radical form of criticism, for it announces that the hurt is to be taken seriously, that the hurt is not to be accepted as normal and natural but is an abnormal and unacceptable condition for humanness  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) The task of prophetic ministry is to nurture, nourish, and evoke a consciousness and perception alternative to the consciousness and perception of the dominant culture around us  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Buechner uses words with such transformative power that any comment on them is like the moon palely reflecting the sun  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) On the other hand, hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretension of the present, daring to announce that the present to which we have all made commitments is now called into question  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) The gospel is fiction when judged by the empire, but the empire is fiction when judged by the gospel  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) When serious people of good faith disagree, they’ve got to go back into the narratives and come at it again. One of the problems in the church is that people are not willing to do that. People have arrived at a place where they think they have got the answer  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) Imagination is a danger thus every totalitarian regime is frightened of the artist. It is the vocation of the prophet to keep alive the ministry of imagination to keep on conjouring and proposing alternative futures to the single one the king wants to urge as the only thinkable one  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) The church meets to imagine what our lives can be like if the gospel were true  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes) And when we take ourselves too seriously, we are grim about the brothers and sisters, especially the dissenting ones, and there will be no health in us and no healing humor  (Walter Brueggemann Quotes)
