[The correct quote is, "hypocrisy is vice's way of paying homage to virtue." -- PB]
Here I am, the cranky UU gadfly, working on a sermon about why it's so hard to say "thanks" and "I love you" within the church context. The reason? Because we're all so painfully aware of how much MORE work there is to be done, we hardly dare celebrate enough what we ARE doing well and with great love.
Can you believe that your very own PeaceBang is one of those ministers who doesn't think we celebrate ourselves enough?
I'm either a huge hypocrite, or just really inconsistent.
The moral of the story is, keep talking about it, and keep loving our faith. And don't take PB too seriously.
