Retreat Readings #3

" You have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood, and stone, which do not see or hear or know; but the God in whose power is your very breath, and to whom belong all your ways, you have not honored."
- Daniel 5:23b

" A powerful superstition of modern life is that people and conditions are improved inevitably by education... We think it ordinary to spend 12 or 16 for 20 years of a person's life and many thousands of public dollars on education - and not a dime or a thought on character."
- Wendell Berry " what are people for" pg 26

" Deliver us, we beseech thee, in our several callings, from the service of mammon, that we may do the work which thou givest us to do, in truth, in beauty, and in righteousness, with a singleness of heart as thy servants, and to the benefit of our fellow man."
- ibid. pg 101
