Thoreau for your Sunday…

…I think that i might go to church myself some Monday, if  i lived in a city where there was such a place to go.In Concord, to be sure,we do not need such.Our forests are such a church, fat grander and more sacred.We dare not leave our meeting places open for fear they would be profaned.Such a cave, such a shrine,in one of our groves, for instance,how long would it be respected?for what purposes would it be entered,by such baboons as we are?…from “A Yankee In Canada”1853
