What has Athens to do with Jerusalem? 
- Tertullian

What has Ingeld to do with Christ?
 -Alcuin (when catching some monks reading Beowulf)

What has Horace to do with the Psalter? Or Virgil with the Gospel? Or Cicero the Apostle?
- Jerome

Every once in a while in my life I have come across metaphors which have opened my eyes to the hope of heaven. They have driven me to understand what it will mean to see Christ face to face and to be like Him. The first time I remember was while reading the book of Revelation: the crystal river of waters flowing into the city of God captured my imagination and haunted my young life with hope.

"I don't know how all this talk about truth, goodness, and beauty are going to get a kid into college."

I heard somewhere that a board member of a Christian classical school uttered these words. I chooose to regard them as apocryphal and thus to set them up as a dummy to respond to. 

Here's my first response:

30% of adults in the US have a college education, while only 20% of our jobs require one. College is an increasingly good way to collect debt and prepare for unemployment.
