Quotes

The existence of St Sophia is atmospheric; that of St Peter's, overpowering, imminently substantial.One is a church to God; the other a salon for his agents.One is consecrated to reality, the other to illusion. St Sophia, in fact, is large, and St Peter's is vilely, tragically small.  -Byron, Robert

Church ain't shucks to a circus.   -Twain, Mark pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens

The Church's one foundation Is Jesus Christ, her Lord; She is his new creation By water and the word; From heaven he came and sought her To be his holy bride, With his own blood he bought her. And for her life he died.   -Stone, Samuel John

Farewell, sweet phrases, lovely metaphors: But will ye leave me thus? when ye before Of stews and brothels only knew the doors, Then did I wash you with my tears, and more, Brought you to church well-dressed and clad: My God must have my best, even all I had.  -Herbert, George

Church isn’t where you meet. Church isn’t a building. Church is what you do. Church is who you are. Church is the human outworking of the person of Jesus Christ. Let’s not go to Church, let’s be the Church.  Bridget Willard

The perfect church service,would be one we were almost unaware of. Our attention would have been on God.  C.S Lewis

Halloa! Here's a church! Let's go in! Here's Miss Skiffins! Let's have a wedding.  -Dickens, CharlesJohn Huffam
