Mystery

Dscf3057_7 "As long as you have mystery you have health; when you destroy mystery you create morbidity. The ordinary man has always been sane because the ordinary man has always been a mystic. He has permitted the twilight."................................--G. K. Chesterton

I like this quote by Chesterton because I like mystery as it relates to God, and I like to think of myself as an ordinary man.  Lately, in a class I am taking, I find myself reading a book that I don’t think this ordinary man would read unless it was required reading for a class.  It is Church Dogmatics by Karl Barth.  This is a very heady theological book that I am surprisingly finding quite inspirational.

I won’t go so far to say that I am understanding all (or most) of what I am reading, but I will say that I am moving out of the dark and into the twilight.  Some of the light that I am seeing is emanating from the wonderful and mysterious concepts of Sacrament, Incarnation and most importantly, Jesus Christ.
