Stringfellow circus quote

“The circus is among the few coherent images of the eschatological realm to which people still have ready access…

This principality, this art, this veritable liturgy, this common enterprise of multifarious creatures called the circus enacts a hope…

biblical people, like circus folk, live typically as sojourners, interrupting time, with few possessions, and in tents, in this world. The church would likely be more faithful if the church were similarly nomadic.”
