Some Susanna and Vincent on a Sunday

A great quote and a good excuse to put some Van Gogh on this blog ....

John Wesley asked his mother, Susanna Wesley, "How do you define sin?" Her reply was perhaps more penetrating that many formal theologians could develop: "If anything weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God or takes away your relish for spiritual things; in short if anything increases the power or authority of the flesh over the Spirit that for you becomes sin however good it is in itself."
