Beautiful Words

by Al Stewart | September/October 2009

Thank you for Rose Marie Berger’s excellent column, “Stammering Through Dreams” (The Hungry Spirit, July 2009).

Thank you for Rose Marie Berger’s excellent column, “Stammering Through Dreams” (The Hungry Spirit, July 2009). I appreciate what she said about “Stammering is an outward sign of humility before the mystery of God.” I continue to be surprised by the number of Christian writers (including the late John Updike) who are stammerers. Would you consider writing an article on stammering in the voice of God?
