That wonderful word: "And"

There was a time in Christian history during which one test for orthodoxy was the willingness to embrace paradox. And so I give you the quotation below. It can be very, very consoling if you let it be:

It is worse than you think it is and you are freer than you think you are. The powers are raging beyond your control and they are already overcome in Christ. The division is an uncrossable spiritual chasm and it’s been crossed.

-- William Stringfellow
