Barrel Organs

"Eternity is a barrel organ whose one and only tune does not bore you." -from Finding God in a Tangled World, p. 172

Really? If that's the case then the disgruntled parishioners who left their congregations over the 'hymns on the organ vs. praise music on the guitar' argument are going to be TRULY bummed out.

The caption of this picture is "Barrel Organ Festival"...does that crowd looked pumped up to you? And another thing, will we all be required to wear those bowler hats in eternity? Surely not! And where are the monkeys?

That's rather a frightening description of what we've always been told would be heavenly bliss!
