church

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on church, good, and people

The bells they sound on Bredon, And still the steeples hum. "Come all to church, good people"- Oh, noisy bells, be dumb; I hear you, I will come.

A.E. Housman (1859 - 1936)

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on church, earth, endurance, good, heaven, and peace

Good night; ensured release, Imperishable peace, Have these for yours. * While sky and sea and land And earth's foundations stand And heaven endures. *These three lines are on the tablet over Housman's grave in the parish church at Ludlow, Shropshire, England

A Quote by A. J. Gossip on church, emotion, feeling, imagination, religion, and trouble

A basic trouble is that most Churches limit themselves unnecessarily by addressing their message almost exclusively to those who are open to religious impression through the intellect, whereas . . . there are at least four other gateways - the emotions, the imagination, the aesthetic feeling, and the will - through which they can be reached.
