“A life lived in chaos is an impossibility”

What I believe is so magnificent, so glorious, that it is beyond finite comprehension. To believe that the universe was created by a purposeful, benign Creator is one thing. To believe that this Creator took on human vesture, accepted death and mortality, was tempted, betrayed, broken, and all for love of us, defies reason. It is so wild that it terrifies some Christians who try to dogmatize their fear by lashing out at other Christians, because tidy Christianity with all answers given is easier than one which reaches out to the wild wonder of God’s love, a love we don’t even have to earn.
– Madeleine L’Engle (November 29, 1918 – September 7, 2007)

One of my favorite people who I never met passed away this Friday. Her books changed me. She was a beautiful woman and will be missed. I imagine that she is at this moment at the feet of her Savior preparing for her journeys in exploration of the universe. She’s walking on water today.

    Wow, I didn’t know she had passed away. A truly sad day since any kid with an ounce of taste in literature would probably list her as one of their favorite authors.
