“God is always bigger than the boxes we build for God….”

In an NPR talk broadcasted on 18th December 2006, Richard Rohr, the Franciscan friar who is criticised by many for his interpretations of the  Bible, and views of religion, observes:

“People who’ve had any genuine spiritual experience always know they don’t know. They are utterly humbled before mystery. They are in awe before the abyss of it all, in wonder at eternity and depth, and a Love, which is incomprehensible to the mind.”

the bibliophile — Ku Mo, Lovedale, India

In “Everything Belongs: The Gift of Contemplative Prayer”, he teaches us:

God is always bigger than the boxes we build for God, so we should not waste too much time protecting the boxes.

Peace 🙂
