OUR INSTANT CULTURE

In a chapter about rethinking discipleship, James Emery White states:

Some of you may remember comedian Yakov Smirnoff. He said when he first came to the United States from Russia; he wasn't prepared for the incredible variety of instant products available in American grocery stores. He says, "On my first shopping trip, I saw powdered milk--you just add water, and you get milk. Then I saw powdered orange juice--you just add water, and you get orange juice. And then I saw baby powder, and I thought to myself, what a country!"

(James Emery White, Rethinking the Church, Baker, 1997, p. 55-57. From Nathan Johnson's Sermon "Following Jesus")
