God

I just finished reading The Shack...I know, I know it has been out for awhile. I really liked this quote:
I am what some would say 'holy, and wholly other than you.' The problem is that many folks try to grasp some sense of who I am by taking the best version of themselves, projecting that to the nth degree, factoring in all the goodness they can perceive, which often isn't much, and then call that God. And while it may seem like a noble effort, the truth is that it falls pitifully short of who I really am. I'm not merely the best version of you that you can think of. I am far more than that, above and beyond all that you can ask or think.

  1. I must be one of the very few people in the world who did not actually like The Shack. But then I'm unpredictable as you know. I just finished Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith and that one truly touched my heart. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  2. I wasn't blown away by it, but did find a few good statements that I really liked.
