a nod to another

Madeleine L'Engle, noted author of A Wrinkle In Time passed on to eternity exactly a week ago. Heaven's gain, our loss.

Here is one of her great insights:
To believe that the universe was created by a purposeful, benign Creator is one thing.

To believe that this Creator took on human vesture, accepted death and mortality, was tempted, betrayed, broken, and all for love of us, defies reason.

It is so wild that it terrifies some Christians who try to dogmatize their fear by lashing out at other Christians, because tidy Christianity with all answers given is easier than one which reaches out to the wild wonder of God's love, a love we don't even have to earn.
