DEAD ICONS VS LIVING SPIRIT

by Ted Schmidt

Now that he is safely dead, let us praise him build monuments to his glory, sing hosannas to his name, Dead men make such convenient heroes: they cannot rise to challenge the images we would fashion from their lives. And besides, it is easier to build monuments than to make a better world.
Carl Wendell Himes Jr.

There is no sharing in the glory of the risen Lord except in the
discipleship of the cross.
Ernst Kasemann
