If your first thought is that the title of this post would be a great name for a band across multiple genres, I agree. But the truth is, in this case, even cooler than the fiction.
This is the Gathering Thought posted at the bottom of the cover of these week’s bulletin at First Presbyterian Church of Allentown:
“Are these things really better than the things I already have? Or am I just trained to be dissatisfied with what I have now?” – Chuck Palahniuk
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen Chuck quoted so prominently in a church setting. For those of you who know of my fondness for some of Chuck’s work, I should also state that I had nothing to do with this bit of timely subversion. Fits very nicely with the liturgy for the Second Sunday of Advent, and for the themes of the Advent Conspiracy at First Pres.
