Fleeting Affluence and Empty Cathedrals

A good word from a Reformation Day sermon I heard in 2005:

Right now is the time for American Christianity to influence the world for Christ.

We cannot be sure how long our time will last. We can spend our time, money and energy constructing affluent church buildings, but I have been to the great cathedrals of both Protestant and Catholic Europe–those cathedrals are empty.

How did they spend their days of affluence? How will we spend ours?
–Jason K. Lee, "Faith and Freedom," 6.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
