I Stumbled Upon Wendell Berry Quotations

As I was googling Berry Street to see what is on the net about The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville, I stumbled upon Wendell Berry quotes.  I like what he says!

“Every day ain’t going to be the best day of your life, don’t worry about that. If you stick to it you hold the possibility open that you will have better days.” –Wendell Berry

“How joyful to be together.” –Wendell Berry

“The soul, in its loneliness, hopes only for ‘salvation.'” –Wendell Berry

“A proper community answers the needs, practical as well as social and spiritual, of its members – among them the need to need one another.” –Wendell Berry

“The Bible’s aim, as I read it, is not the freeing of the spirit from the world. It is the handbook of their interaction.” –Wendell Berry

“We cannot comprehend what comprehends us.” –Wendell Berry

“Do unto those downstream as you would have those upstream do unto you.” — Wendell Berry

“If the devil doesn’t exist… how do you explain that some people are a lot worse than they’re smart enough to be?” — Wendell Berry

“A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other’s lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.” — Wendell Berry

“It is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.” — Wendell Berry

“Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.” — Wendell Berry

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
