[Frederick Buechner] Listen to your life

It’s Friday, so I’ll keep this simple and leave you with a quote from one of my heroes, Frederich Buechner…

If I were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything I was trying to say both as a novelist and as a preacher, it would be something like this: Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.

From Now and Then and Listening to Your Life

Grace + Godspeed,
