Conversations with Christians

The past few weeks I've been involved in some conversations with some folks that take their Christian faith pretty seriously. The conversations went well. I didn't feel like they were trying to convert me or tried to convey any sense of moral superiority. But upon reflection I'm reminded of this quote by Robert Bly in his book titled: A Little Book On The Human Shadow.

"What did [William] Blake say?-'No person who is not an artist can be a Christian.' He means that a person who refuses to approach his own life actively, using language, music, sculpture, painting, or drawing is a caterpillar dressed in Christian clothes, not a human being."[Robert Bly, Pg.43]
