Madeleine L'Engle
“It might be a good idea if, like the White Queen, we practiced believing six impossible things every morning before breakfast, for we are called on to believe what to many people is impossible. Instead of rejoicing in this glorious "impossible" which gives meaning and dignity to our lives, we try to domesticate God, to make his might actions comprehensible to our finite minds.”
Madeleine L'Engle

James K.A. Smith
“Acknowledging the interpreted status of the gospel should translate into a certain humility in our public theology. It should not, however, translate into skepticism about the truth of the Christian confession. If the interpretive status of the gospel rattles our confidence in its truth, this indicates that we remain haunted by the modern desire for objective certainty. But our confidence rests not on objectivity but rather on the convictional power of the Holy Spirit (which isn't exactly objective).”
James K.A. Smith, Who's Afraid of Postmodernism?: Taking Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault to Church

Alexander Schmemann
“Religion is needed where there is a wall of separation between God and man. But Christ who is both God and man has broken down the wall between man and God. He has inaugurated a new life, not a new religion.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World

“God loves the world and wants it to experience that love in Christ in such a way that it can respond to it and share it. This means, then, that no particular culture is privileged in the missionary enterprise, and no culture is rejected. All human cultures, marked as they are by the tension of being simul creatus etpeccator (simultaneously created and sinful), are honored by God as potential receivers of Christ and his calling.”
Darrell L. Guder, The Continuing Conversion of the Church

Alexander Schmemann
“In the radiance of His light the world is not commonplace. The very floor we stand on is a miracle of atoms whizzing about in space. The darkness of sin is clarified, and its burden shouldered. Death is robbed of its finality, trampled down by Christ's death. In a world where everything that seems to be present is immediately past, everything in Christ is able to participate in the eternal present of God.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy
