The Mystery

The hope…

The mystery of God’s love, as I understand it, is that God loves Susan Smith, who drowned her two sons, as much as he loves Desmond Tutu. And he loved her just as much while she was releasing the handbrake of her car that sent her boys into the river as He did when she first nursed them.

So of course He loves old, ordinary me, even or especially at my most scared and petty and mean and obsessive. Loves me; chooses me.”
