Quote of the Day

"This division of the whole of reality into sacred and profane... creates the possibility of existence in only one of these sectors: for instance a spiritual existence that takes no part in worldly existence, and a woldly existence that can make good its claim to authority over against the sacred sector. The monk and the cultural Protestant... represent these two possibilities... We try to stand in the two realms at the same time, thereby becoming people in eternal confict, shaped by the post-Reformation era, who ever and again present ourselves as the only form of Christian existence that is in accord with reality."--Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ethics
