    "Many of our attempts to understand Christian faith have only cheapened it. I can no more understand the totality of God than the pancake I made for breakfast understands the complexity of me."
    (-Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz)


    I've been reading this book for months. Not because it's long or boring or difficult--the time it's taking is only my own fault. A lot of the words have caused me to stop and think--maybe more than any other book I've ever read. But something about this passage struck a chord in my soul about the greatness of my God, about how far he sits above my understanding, and yet he makes himself so near to my ignorant heart.

    It humbles me to realize how much we think we know what's going on down here. We think we've got the world figured out. We think we can make sense of the universe with science and formulas and endless theories. Truth is, we have no idea what we're dealing with. And we don't really need to know.

That's a beautiful way to describe faith.
