Celebrating our Complexity and Simplicity

“We honor and celebrate our complexity and our simplicity by continually doing five things. We tell stories. We act our rituals. We create beauty. We work in communities. We think out beliefs. No doubt you might think of more, but that’s enough for the moment. In and through all these things run the threads of love and pain, fear and faith, worship and doubt, the quest for justice, the thirst for spirituality, and the promise and problem of human relationship. And if there’s any such thing as ‘truth’ in the absolute sense, it must relate to, and make sense of, all this and more.”
NT Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense, p. 49
