On the Impossible

“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 mighty actions comprehensible to our finite minds.”

Madeleine L’Engle

One response to “On the Impossible

    This is wonderful, Bonnie! It was actually hard to come up with the 6 because I didn’t want to think of something REALLY impossible, just mildly impossible (though that makes no sense). It’s like I didn’t want to give God something too hard. Hmm… Obviously, I was the one that was supposed to read your quote. I love you lots!
