Voice of the Day: Frederick Buechner

By the Web Editors 11-28-2012
It is as impossible for us to demonstrate the existence of God as it would be for even Sherlock Holmes to demonstrate the existence of Arthur Conan Doyle. All-wise. All-powerful. All-loving. All-knowing. ... God cannot be expressed but only experienced. In the last analysis, you cannot pontificate but can only point. A Christian is one who points at Christ and says, "I can't prove a thing, but there's something about his eyes and his voice. There's something about the way he carries his head, his hands. The way he carries his cross. The way he carries me." - Frederick Buechner In Wishful Thinking: A Seeker's ABC + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
