Feast of George, Martyr, Patron of England, c.304
Commemoration of Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1988
Jesus came to raise the dead. The only qualification for the gift of the Gospel is to be dead. You don’t have to be smart... You don’t have to be good. You don’t have to be wise. You don’t have to be wonderful. You don’t have to be anything... you just have to be dead. That’s it.
... Robert Farrar Capon (1925-2013), The Door Interviews, Mike Yaconelli, Zondervan, 1989, p. 230
