William Willimon

The celebrated preacher William Willimon now has his own blog: A Peculiar Prophet. There’s some good stuff there, including this post on consumerism:

“For me, one of the most moving moments is when people come forward to receive the Lord’s Supper. They shuffle forward and hold out their hands to receive the elements of communion. I look into their outstretched empty hands. I say, ‘I notice that your hands are empty, as if you were empty, needing some gift…. In this moment, you look touchingly dependent, as if your life would be nothing if you did not receive a gift.’ The good news of the gospel is that such bad news about us is the great good news about God.”
