“The Christian faith has not been invented in order for us to claim for ourselves a powerful God who will push the delete button on all our enemies. The Christian faith is, rather, grounded in the story of that One who, against all human reason, emptied himself of his glory and came into our desert places, midnight to the north of him, midnight to the south of him, to stand under the wrath of God in place of the murderers of Rwanda and us sinners inside these four walls today.” — Fleming Rutledge, Advent
