Spiritual Sundays

It is Spiritual Sunday at Charlotte's at
http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/2008/08/first-spiritual-sundays-sharing.html go there to participate.Love this quote from Kierkegaard--(I don't know to much about his theology--but you have to love this quote)

"When it is a question of a sinner He does not merely stand still, open his arms and say, 'Come hither'; no, He stands there and waits, as the father of the lost son waited, rather He does not stand and wait, He goes forth to seek, as the shepherd sought the lost sheep, as the woman sought the lost coin. He goes--yet no, He has gone, but infinitely farther than any shepherd or any woman, He went, in sooth, the infinitely long way from being God to becoming man, and that way He went in search of sinners."

I studied Kierkegaard in a college philosophy Class but I have never heard this quote. It's a good one! Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I have heard of the book you mentioned but I have yet to read it. Yes, we are only pilgrims here for awhile.
