The Meaning of Life, Part 5

"But God is present where life is lived bravely, eagerly, responsibly, even without any explicit reference to religion. The point is this: people who courageously accept themselves, who accept their own life with all its quirks and beauty and agony, in point of fact accept holy mystery, who abides within them addressing them as self-offering love." p. 45
--Elizabeth A. Johnson, Quest for the Living God


  1. I just love this quest for the meaning of life, which to me it seems there should be as many meanings as there are people.

    This is a great quote but I still can't get the "God is dirt, God is sex" out of my head. Thanks John.

  2. there should be as many meanings as there are people

    Thanks for getting that this is my own quest!
