a strange country

"I have noticed that the most effective sermons were those in which I spoke enticingly of the gospel, like someone telling children a story of a strange country. The difficulty in principle remains: one should give milk, but one doesn't know what that means and wonders whether one isn't giving sugared water by mistake."

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer ("Bonhoeffer: Worldly Preaching", p. 12)
