Bethel Sentences from Popular Quotes and Books

1. "A rock concert at a farm in Bethel, New York, in 1969 attracted some 400,000 people who wallowed happily about in the rain, some in various stages of undress and drug-induced haze, for three days. Traffic jams and police barricades prevented many thousands more from attending. "Woodstock" was the culminating event of "countercultural"

2. "When he arrived at the town of Bethel, he was teased by a group of boys who called him baldy. Elisha responded to their taunts by summoning a team of wild she-bears. The bears mauled the boys to death, leaving the bloody remains of forty-two children littered on the ground.  Nobody knows why Elisha didn’t just summon a full head of hair."
- Mark Russell, God Is Disappointed In You

3. "He didn’t mind it in the beginning, this slowness. It left him alone with himself while he fished and listened to the call of the herons, and taught Anthony to row a boat and to play baseball and soccer, while Anthony read to him from his children’s books as Alexander held the fishing line. The soul was repairing itself little by little. And it was on Bethel Island, with his mother and father twenty-four hours by his side, watching over him, talking to him, playing with him, that Anthony stopped waking up with nightmares in the middle of the night and settled down to silence inside himself. And it was on Bethel Island that Alexander stopped needing ice cold baths at three in the morning—the hot sudsy dimly lit baths with her soapy hands and soapy body in the late evening sufficing."
- Paullina Simons, The Summer Garden

4. "At Evensong one night, while Holly played at sax and Mrs. Bethel Utemeyer joined in, I saw him: Holiday, racing past a fluffy white Samoyed. He had lived to a ripe old age on earth and slept at my father's feet after my mother left, never wanting to let him out of his sight... I waited for him to sniff me out, anxious to know if here, on the other side, I would still be the little girl he slept beside. I did not have to wait long: he was so happy to see me, he knocked me down."
- Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones

5. "Rashi was trained to wrestle with God like Jacob at Bethel, to bargain with him like Moses at Mt. Sinai. Rashi's people have an ancient tradition of questioning God "face-toface, as a man speaks with his friend." [Exodus 33:11] Conversely, I abandoned my faith because it seemed I had no right to question the difficulties, much less expect answers. I had been taught to accept ready-made dogma rather than to personally take my doubts to God. Make no mistake; I do not blame the church for my lost time. I might well have fallen away no matter what. But it is just possible that several years of painful isolation from the Lord might have been avoided had I learned at an early age this simple truth that most Reform Jews know: God loves an honest question."
- Athol Dickson, The Gospel According to Moses: What My Jewish Friends Taught Me about Jesus

6. "I promise you that the discovery of your True Self will feel like a thousand pounds of weight have fallen from your back. You will no longer have to build, protect, or promote any idealized self image. Living in the True Self is quite simply a much happier existence, even though we never live there a full twenty-four hours a day. But you henceforth have it as a place to always go back to. You have finally discovered the alternative to your False Self. You are like Jacob awakening from sleep and joining the chorus of mystics in every age. You were here all along, and I never knew it! he says (Genesis 28:16). He anoints the stone pillow where this happened and names it Bethel, or the house of God and gate of heaven (28:17–18).4 Jacob then carries the presence with him wherever he goes. What was first only there is soon everywhere. The gate of heaven is first of all in one concrete place, better if carried with you, and best when found everywhere. That is the progression of the spiritual"

7. "Alexander moved her off him, laid her down, was over her, was pressed into her, crushing her. Anthony was right there, he didn't care, he was trying to inhale her, trying to absorb her into himself. "All this time you were stepping out in front of me, Tatiana," he said. "Now I finally understand. You hid me on Bethel Island for eight months. For two years you hid me and deceived me - to save me. I am such an idiot," he whispered. "Wretch or not, ravaged or not, in a carapace or not, there you still were, stepping out for me, showing the mute mangled stranger your brave and indifferent face." Her eyes closed, her arms tightened around his neck. "That stranger is my life," she whispered. They crawled away from Anthony, from their only bed, onto a blanket on the floor, barricading themselves behind the table and chairs. "You left our boy to go find me, and this is what you found..." Alexander whispered, on top of her, pushing inside her, searching for peace. Crying out underneath him"
- Paullina Simons, The Summer Garden

8. " said slowly, Maybe poker. Absolutely. Cheating poker then. Rueful Russian Lazarevo smiles passed their faces. I’ll take care of you, she whispered, the hand he wasn’t holding shaking under the table. For God’s sake, Tania... I’m a man. I can’t not work. You’ve never stopped your whole life. Come on. Stop running with me. The irony in that made her tremble and she hoped he wouldn’t notice. Let me take care of you, Tatiana said hoarsely, like you know I ache to. Let me do for you. Like I’m your nurse at the Morozovo critical care ward. Please. Tears came to her eyes. She said quickly, When there’s no more money, you can work again. But for now... let’s leave here. I know just the place. Her smile was so pathetic. Out of my stony griefs, Bethel I’ll raise, she whispered. Alexander was silently contemplating her, puzzled again, troubled again. I honestly don’t understand, he said. I thought you liked it here. I like you more."
- Paullina Simons, The Summer Garden
