Famous quotes containing the words church and/or ethiopian:

    She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
    Alice Walker (b. 1944)

    Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
    Bible: Hebrew Jeremiah, 13:23.
