Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

Grace is the celebration of life, relentlessly hounding all the non-celebrants in the world. It is a floating, cosmic bash shouting its way through the streets of the universe, flinging the sweetness of its cassations to every window, pounding at every door in a hilarity beyond all liking and happening, until the prodigals come out at last and dance, and the elder brothers finally take their fingers out of their ears.

Romance, Law & the Outrage of Grace

Are the elder brothers afraid of the dance? Odd this is about ears as that is mostly what I am thinking about these days while waiting for the hearing to return to my right hear.
