And Learning From Our Mistakes
Easter is about New Beginnings.
We often trip up stumbling our way to Bethlehem, but hopefully we learn something about ourselves along the way. Abba understands—really understands. He stands under us with eyes that only fill up with compassion, mercy and love. Always a deeper and deeper love.
I believe it is along this line that a contemporary seer writes:
Surely God does not exist so that we can think correctly about Him—or Her. Amazingly and wonderfully, like all good parents, God desires instead the flourishing of what God created and what God loves—us ourselves. Ironically, we flourish more by learning from our mistakes and changing than by a straight course that teaches us nothing. (Richard Rohr)
