Have you seen God lately?

God’s revelations are through the concrete and specific. Spirituality is not a Platonic world of ideas and theories about which you can be right or wrong. Revelation is not something you measure, but something—or Someone—you meet! This pattern of incarnation reaches its fullness in one small place on the planet, in one short period of history, in one very ordinary man named Jesus. Walter Brueggemann calls this the “scandal of the particular.”  From this necessary shock, our job is to universalize! Unfortunately, most people just stay with the shock and call it a one-time miracle, which they can then argue about. Or they refuse to accept the shock at all, which is most of our contemporary society. - Richard Rohr
