“It was enough that we knew that the Incarnation is God’s amazing gift of love and we cannot explain it. When we try to explain it we lose it, as I discovered in my middle, rational years. I do not understand the Incarnation. I rejoice in it.” - Madeleine L’Engle, “Bright Evening Star”

John 10:7 - 10 7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
