Actually, the Crack Cocaine of Acceptance

“I think good preachers shouild be like bad kids. They ought to be naughty enough to tiptoe up on dozing congregations, steal their bottles of religion pills, spirituality pills, and morality pills, and flush them down the drain . . . But preachers can’t be that naughty or brave unless they’re free of their own need for the dope of acceptance” (Robert Farrar Capon, The Foolishness of Preaching, p.14).
