Slapped Upside the Head

What we have lost… is a full sense of the power of God – to recruit people who have made terrible choices; to invade the most hopeless lives and fill them with light; to sneak up on people who are thinking about lunch, not God, and smack them up side the head with glory.

Barbara Brown Taylor, “Miracle on the Beach,” in her Home by Another Way (Boston: Cowley, 1999), 38.
