“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.” – @Fred_Buechner
This is just truth, and framed in Buechner’s famous wordsmithery: “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
God doesn’t make life shiny and perfect. We are not protected from every possible bad thing. The world is complicated. Great and horrible. But we are not alone.
Great work from Buechner: Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, and The Magnificent Defeat.
