Quotidian Quotations - April 14, 2012

Stanley Hauerwas, on the role of singing in the Christian community:

"Singing, next to eating, is the most physical and communal form of behavior. Our voice comes from our body. When we sing our bodies are joined, making possible a good in common that cannot be destroyed even when a people are under occupation or persecution or otherwise do not seem to be in control of their own destiny...It is, therefore, not surprising that a community bound in unity through the body and blood of Jesus is also a community that not only sings but must sing."
