The Problem Inside the Solution
I was reading in Richard Rohr's wonderful book "Falling Upward"
This passage caught my attention
"The genius of the Gospel was that it included the problem inside the solution
The falling became standing
The stumbling became the finding
The dying because the rising.
The raft became the shore."
The paradox of faith is always centered around what God can
around that "great reversal' most clearly seen in the cross
where defeat became victory
and death became life
The are times when life seems defined by words like
And yet the promise of God is this
that with Christ those were are not the totality
There is always
There is always hope
and the grace of God
which goes beyond all understanding
