Quote for the Week
"In the divine economy of grace, sin and failure become the base metal and raw material of the redemption experience itself. Much of organised religion, however, tends to be peopled by folks who have a mania for some ideal order, which is never true, so they are seldom happy or contented... you can never be happy with life as it is, which is always filled with handicapped people, mentally unstable people, people of 'other' and 'false' religions, irritable people, gay people, and people of totally different customs and traditions. Not to speak of wild nature, which we have not loved very well up to now. Organised religion has not been known for its inclusiveness or for being very comfortable with diversity. Yet pluriformity, multiplicity, and diversity is the only world there is! It is rather amazing that we can miss, deny, or ignore what is in plain sight everywhere."
Richard Rohr, Falling Upwards (London: SPCK, 2011), p. 60
