I learned something today
listening to Bill speak about comfort as the gospel
that God’s consoling, comforting, relational presence
actually is not what the gospel is about but rather
is the gospel – the good news – the thing hoped for
the evidence of that unseen – the elusive ‘it’ of Jesus –
comfort . . . consolation . . . love . . . mother love . . .
clasping to the breast in fierce . . . challenging . . .
account demanding . . . calming . . . consoling . . .
How about that?
