More Spiritual than God

One of the blunders religious people are particularly fond of making is the attempt to be more spiritual than God. -Frederick Buechner

I love Buechner's ability to tell a story that is full and rich with life. I also like his ability to translate truth into words that pierce deeply.

I'd love to argue "No, never. Not me!" but I can not. My response, instead, must be, "Forgive me, Father. Once again, I'm trying to be you and we both know how ridiculous that is."
