When God Thunders

August 22, 2018

Religion is one of

the safest places

to hide from God.

— Richard Rohr

“I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies,” thunders God in Amos 5:21.

[Let’s spend the month of August 2018 looking at some quotes, lines, memes, and other timeless ephemera — how’s that for an oxymoron? — that are too good not to share. Let’s contextualize some, let’s dissect others, and let’s simply enjoy still others. Let’s go!]

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God,” says James 1:27, “is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
