Palmer St. Podcast: Confidence

 

Calvin scaredThe best children’s literature is not only written for children.  Fairy tales can be full of danger and drama and life and death struggles – like the best literature.  In Calvin and Hobbes (which used to be my personal favorite comic) there are always monsters under the bed, aliens or “Deranged Killer Monster Snow Goons” ready to attack.  It’s the drama that makes them so enjoyable.

Palmer St. Podcast: Poetry and Prayer

 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer 1906-1945The child learns to speak because his father speaks to him. He learns the speech of his father. So we learn to speak to God because God has spoken to us and speaks to us. By means of the speech of the Father in heaven his children learn to speak with him. Repeating God’s own words after him, we begin to pray to him. 
           — Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 1906-1945, in Psalms: The Prayer Book of the Bible
