I'm Pondering This

Food for thought, on this lovely Sunday afternoon...

"I'm a doctor, Polly, not a theologian, and lots of Christian dogma seems to me no more than barnacles encrusting a great rock. I don't think that God demanded that Jesus shed blood unwillingly. With anguish, yes, but with love. Whatever we give, we have to give out of love. That, I believe, is the nature of God."

-Dr. Colubra in "An Acceptable Time" by Madeleine L'Engle
