Monday with…Robert Capon Farrar

Robert Farrar Capon Here is my Monday with… this wee it is Robert Capon Farrar a parish priest from New York.

We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore, He changes them into ‘nice people’.’ But radical Christianity wasn’t nice; it was category-smashing, life-threatening, anti-institutional; it spread like wildfire throught he 1st century and was considered by those in power to be dangerous. ‘I want to be filled with an astonishment which is so captivating tht I am considred wild and unpredictable and … well … dangerous’. I want to be dangerous to a dull and boring religion. I want a faith that is considered dangerous by our predictable and monotonous culture. Dullness is a cultural issue.’

 

This a quote that I love from a great man.
