The Church to which we belong is a mistake made holy.
Christianity as a religion was never meant to exist:
created by fallen humanity out of our need certainty, security, and control,
yet through which God has undeniably managed from time to time
to create in us the opposite qualities of Faith, Hope, and Love.
Christianity is a paradox:
an organism that became an organization,
yet somehow retains a beating Heart;
a movement that became an institution,
yet somehow cannot contain its Yearning to follow;
a Way that became an end,
yet somehow stumbles into new Beginnings.
