“The Church is like manure. Pile it together and it stinks up the neighbourhood; spread it out and it enriches the world.”

  1. This reminds me of a quote comparing the church to Noah’s ark found in Frederick Buechner’s book Peculiar Treasurers: “If it weren’t for the storm without, you could never stand the stench within.”

  2. Oops. That should be “Treasures” not “Treasurers”, although the latter are sometimes indeed peculiar.

  3. Thanks Marsha – I love the quote (I saw it recently elsewhere too). I particularly enjoyed your correction ;o)
