Ed Rodman is a Priest in the (American) Episcopal Church. I got to know him a bit when I was the Rector at St. James's Church in Cambridge MA, and he hung his shingle at the Episcopal Divinity in that City.
Here is a bit of "Ed Rodman Wisdom". I think that he uttered this for the benefit of seminarians.
But I suggest that his wisdom is good for all of us
The wisdom of Canon Ed Rodman (as reported by Dr. Ruy Costa, Executive Director, Episcopal City Mission [Boston] in the Fall 2007 edition of the ECM newsletter).
Here it is.
a. watch for the type of weapon you will use to kill the mosquito on your forehead;
b. nothing has a greater hold on the minds of people than ignorance fraught with technicalities;
c. never forget that the most dangerous thing in the world is to attempt to leap a chasm in two jumps; and,
d. never believe your own propaganda.
