Sunday Quotes: So Damn Interesting

“For me learning to be a Christian has meant learning to live without answers. Indeed to learn to live in this way is what makes being a Christian so wonderful. Faith is but a name for learning to go on without knowing the answers. That is to put the matter too simply. But at least such a claim might suggest why I find that being a Christian makes life so damn interesting.”

Sunday Quotes: An Adventure Called Kingdom

“God has not promised us safety, but rather participation in an adventure called kingdom. That seems to me to be great good news in a world that is literally dying of boredom. God has entrusted us, God’s church, with the best damn story in the world. With great ingenuity we have managed to make that story, with the aid of much theory, as boring as hell.”
