human highway

"We do not really know what it means to be human unless we know God. And, in turn, we do not really know God except through our own broken and rejoicing humanity. In Jesus, God tells us that God is not different from humanity.
"Jesus' reality, his cross, is to say a free "yes" to what his humanity finally asks of him.
"It seems that we Christians have been worshipping Jesus' journey instead of doing his journey. The first feels very religious; the second feels human, and not glorious at all."
- Richard Rohr, in Everything Belongs.
