Mind is Racing Tonight

Buechner is on the brain tonight.

“The Gospel is bad news before it is good news.”

He sees the story of Jesus as saturated with the tragedy of human failure, the comedy of being loved overwhelmingly by God despite that failure, and the fairy tale of transformation through that love. Specifically, he pushes teachers of the gospels to teach them in light of these categories. (Thanks Brandon Vogt)

Do you comprehend the beauty and complexity of the Gospel Message?
