The first, from our guest of honor, the inimitable Peter Rollins (roughly paraphrased - who could keep up with the man's words?):
Whenever a circle is drawn defining insiders and outsiders, us and them - the Christian is the one who always steps outside that circle to identify with the outsiders.
(If anyone can improve my remembrance of that idea, please help. There will be a podcast, I think.)
The second quote is from Bob, our gracious host (we crashed at his house), a wise and unbitter escaped pastor:
Money almost always presupposes control.
I keep turning over and over those two ideas. Maybe eventually I'll make something of them.
