This Broken and Beautiful World
“It is one of the remarkable features of human existence that wondrous and awesome things become familiar and banal, that we live in the world completely and self-satisfyingly blind to its marvels. In the words of scripture, we forget that the Lord has done for us.”
The Permanent Revolution, Alan Hirsch and Tim Catchim
I don’t know what to add to this. I feel like one of my life goals is to constantly remind others (and myself) how amazing the world we live in is and, even more so, how amazing it has that the God of the universe humbled himself to become man and dwell among us. I know this world is broken and crazy and all kinds of screwed up. But its full of beauty and wonder at the same time. I count on the belief that this God loves me, cares for me and promises to fix this broken-beautiful place – and that includes me.
