Out of our depth

A view of the ocean

When we would consider the love of God in Christ, we are as one approaching the ocean: he casts a glance on the surface, but the depths he cannot sound.

R.C. Chapman

This weekend, I got to witness again how God’s love can bubble over from people’s lives and in its wake people come together in spite of differences in age, interests, cultures, and life situations.  Problems don’t all disappear instantly, but those “depths [we] cannot sound” can bear marvelous riches when we’re willing to wade right in.

(And for another reminder, check out this old hymn.)
