“Proleptic Laughter”

I put a new quote on the sidebar, but lest you miss it, I’m posting it here. It deserves to be the theme for not just Lutheran blogs, but Lutheran conversation in general.

“Nothing is more serious or worthy of debate than theology. And just for that reason a little proleptic laughter is always in order.” (Gilbert Meilaender, “How Churches Crack Up,” First Things, June/July 1991 [#14], p. 42)
