Here's a quote that immediately made me think of Alan and his teachings of late. It came via email as today's CQOD.

"Sermons should not be preached in churches. It harms Christianity in a high degree and alters its very nature, that it is brought into an artistic remoteness from reality, instead of being heard in the midst of real life... For all this talk about quiet, about quiet places and quiet hours, as the right element for Christianity is absurd. So then sermons should not be preached in churches but in the midst of life, of the reality of daily life, weekday life."
~Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)

As a side note, at the end of today's email was the following notice: "The final new CQOD installment will be on August 22. After that time, CQOD will recycle, beginning with August 23, 1996. Thank you for the expressions of heart-felt encouragement I have received from so many of you. I will not be able to answer them all. But I have a little gift for each of you. Go to This is free for the downloading. It contains all seven years of CQOD. Let me know if you have problems. May the Lord richly bless you in the coming years. More later. ~RMA" I have only been receiving the emails for about a year, so I'm sure I'll still see new stuff for a very long time, but I thought that the 7 years at one pop was a nice touch. Now if I only had a CD burner to burn that file onto...
