The Journey of a Postmodern Christian

Quote of the Week 1:

The following quote is from Exclusion and Embrace by Miroslav Volf. I found it very appropriate as we reflect on the horrors of September 11.

“The memory of sin must be kept alive for a while, as long as it is needed for repentance and transformation to occur. But then it must be let die, so that the fractured relationship of the divine mother and her all too human child may be fully healed. The memory of offense, sustained beyond repentance, clouds both the memory of past love and the vision of future reconciliation. The loss of this memory—the memory of iniquities—brings back the child into the mother’s arms, already outstretched toward it because she would not lose the memory of their embrace”

God may we find your peace within your embrace.
