Currently reading this book by Brian McLaren. I love the way he writes and makes me think. He wrote this in regards to redefining Calvinism's TULIP (in favor of, as the title of the book says, a more generous orthodoxy):
To be chosen means to be "blessed to be a blessing", to be healed to heal, to be chosen to serve, to be enriched to enrich, to be taught to teach.
I love that! What a beautiful, humbling way to describe one of (to me) the most profound mysteries of God. I pray God will use me in loving and remaking this broken world.
