Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk — real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious.

Jack Kerouac; On the Road. (via photosbyivor)

Fascinating. I will need to read this book.

I would like to hear a roundtable with Jack Kerouac, Missional pastor Rob Bell (author of Sex God, Lauren Winner (Real Sex), and Morgan Freeman.

I think this would be an interesting mix of people. Rob has been a believer his whole life, and is making faith palatable for many younger disenchanted believers. Lauren has an interesting adult conversion story and teaches theology at Duke. Morgan Freeman has a fantastic voice, and I’d like him there, regardless of his opinions on the matter :-)
