Journal August 13


“If God speaks to us at all other than through such official channels as the Bible and the church, then I think that he speaks to us largely through what happens to us… If we keep our hearts and minds open as well as our ears, if we listen with patience and hope, if we remember at all deeply adn honestly, then I think we come to recognize, beyond all doubt, that, however faintly we may hear him, he is indeed speaking to us, and that however little we may understand of it. His word to each of us is both recoverable adn precious beyond telling.”

-Now and Then by Frederick Buechner
