quote of the week

"Communion with God is more often an intuition or inner conviction that God's heart is greater than your heart, God's mind is greater than your human mind, and God's light is so much greater than your light that it might blind you and make you feel like you're in the night."

Henri Nouwen


  1. Occasionally, I'm struck with this conviction. I wish it lasted. Haven't read much of Nouwen, but he seems like the bomb.

  2. umm could you send me that reference? i'd really like to memorize it, you know, plaster it onto a bottle of holy water for casting those things out or something. oh dear.

    and i really like this quote. it eases the questions i tend to run around.
