Watching and listening to the interview with FREDERICK BUECHNER in Easter Hope in Time of War (recorded in 2003 so that gives us some context). I just love the ways he pieces his phrases to convey truth that sets people free … free to respond … free to live!
“What really matters is not so much what happened there. It’s what happens now. What happens in your life and my life. Is God making himself known in some powerful and saving way among people, even, who don’t give a hoot about God? Is this still a reality which is part of the madness and self-destructiveness and darkness of the world? That’s what really matters.”
