New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Here then is man's final dilemma... To hold in the same heart and mind the mysterious universe, the light years, the distant stars, the dark expanses of the worlds beyond worlds—and beyond them to see that the truth of starlit nights lies in "Silent Night, Holy Night"... To know both worlds and be at home in one is the secret of life... Then the stars can light fires in shadowed eyes which burn the brighter for the shadows... —O.P. Kretzmann, The Pilgrim, p. 33.
