Carl Trueman on Tragic Worship:

The psalms as the staple of Christian worship have been too often replaced not by songs that capture the same sensibilities”as the many great hymns of the past did so well” but by those that assert triumph over death while never really giving death its due. The tomb is certainly empty; but we are not sure why it would ever have been occupied in the first place.

Peter Kreeft on Pascal and Our Addiction to Distraction:

We want to complexify our lives. We don’t have to, we want to. We wanted to be harried and hassled and busy. Unconsciously, we want the very things we complain about. For if we had leisure, we would look at ourselves and listen to our hearts and see the great gaping hold in our hearts and be terrified, because that hole is so big that nothing but God can fill it.
