Robert Farrar Capon: “For all its rooted loveliness, the world has no continuing city”

27 April 2012

“For all its rooted loveliness, the world has no continuing city here; it is an outlandish place, a foreign home, a session in via to a better version of itself-and it is our glory to see it so and to thirst until Jerusalem comes home at last. We were given appetites, not to consume the world and forget it, but to taste its goodness and hunger to make it great.”

- Robert Farrar Capon, “The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection”

    I don’t have anything to add. I just wanted to thank you for sharing a fine piece of great wisdom, I had never been exposed to before.
