They can't shake the influence, having come of age in the '60's, just as they're coming of age now in their sixties.

They're being pulled in both directions simultaneously, one foot in each world."
"That God is separate from God's people. That God is often angry, in search of a better humanity. That God shows grace to the chosen; but that God of my childhood chose only 3 or 4 percent of the world's population." Jonathan S. Williams
