At the Rob Bell Seminar ......

At the Rob Bell Seminar he quoted Frederick Buechner saying: "The common view is that life itself, whatever life is, does not care one way or another any more than the ocean cares whether we swim in it or drown in it. In honesty one has to admit that a great deal of the evidence supports such a view. But rightly or wrongly, the Christian faith flatly contradicts it. To say that God is Spirit is to say that life does care, that the life-giving power that is life itself comes from is not indifferent as to whether we sink or swim. It wants us to swim."
