In Honor of Richard John Neuhaus

A quote from an older book that is just as applicable today, when we think that this time and this generation is different than any that has gone before, and especially when certain leaders encourage, or at least do not discourage, the messianic accolades of their supporters...

"To explore the new in the knowledge of the sameness of things is to be wise; to let the sameness of things obscure the new is to be jaded. Nothing is as new as it is cracked up to be; nothing is quite the same as anything else. 'Behold, I am doing a new thing.' Ours is not the definative time in which that new thing is happening (that time was the resurrection of Jesus, which is in mysterious truth our past, present, and promised future); but neither is our time any other time."

-Richard John Neuhaus, The Naked Public Square (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1984) p. 5.
