Quote of the Week

(A little advice on how to listen to a bad sermon:)

God calleth preaching folly: do not grudge
To pick out treasures from an earthen pot.
The worst speak something good; if all want 
          sense,
God takes a text, and preacheth patience.

- George Herbert, 17th-cent. English poet and priest

(Painting: "The Sermon," by Eduard Lebiedzki, 19th cent.)
