tom wright makes a funny

from the transcript of a lecture by n.t. wright in may 2005:
we have this thing in the anglican church where no service is complete without one of these wretched little microphones, and we have the line at the beginning of the service where the bishop is struggling with the equipment and the congregation has a service sheet that they are expecting to follow through, and the bishop says, “there’s something wrong with this microphone,” and the congregation obediently responds, “and also with you.” it could almost be a definition of postmodernity, actually, that, where something comes back at you revealing your own inadequacies.
for the article, hat tip to rick @ world of your making
