Not sure why. Haven’t fealt really very “bloggish” for the last couple weeks. Maybe I need a bit of a rest from it. Haven’t really been reading as intently as I usually do either. My soul just feels a bit quiet, like it’s resting. And I’m good with that. I have been still slowly working my way through The Sacredness of Questioning Everything by David Dark so I’ll share another interesting quote here briefly from page 114:
“…The many want the Jesus Christ whose name is a secret password into eternal bliss. The few will allow Jesus’ gospel to actually infect the way they think about, talk about, and regard other people. The few will grapple…with Jesus’ always provocative good news broadcast.
If we do grapple with it, our sense of the newsworthy and of who we need to be listening to will be subverted and overturned. We will begin to sense a sanctifying presence in new places. We’ll dream new dreams about ourselves. The remarkable and the holy will show up unexpectedly. Our sense of the world will become one where no human life is unsacred or uninteresting, and there are no nobodies. Every stranger has a story.”
