3 Minute Silence

Thanks Maggi for this (according to her, at Noon today there will be 3 minutes silence across the UK to remember the victims of the tsunami.) …

“As far as limits are concerned, I think it best simply to remain silent and to leave the unresolvable unresolved. The belief in resurrection is not the ‘solution’ to the problem of death. The ‘beyond’ of God is not the ‘beyond’ of our cognitive capacity. Epistemological transcendence has nothing to do with God’s transcendence. God is ‘beyond’ [in] our lives. The church is found not where human capacity fails, at the limits, but rather in the middle of the village. “

(Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Tegel Prison, 30 April 1944)
