I love Madeleine L'Engle. That quote is lovely. :)
I had only read one of her books (A Wrinkle in Time), but I am loving this memoir she wrote.
Wow, so short, but what a powerful quote. I agree with her. If we can't affirm others and lift them up, what's the point in being a follower of Christ? It takes away the command to be the hands and feet of Jesus.Vonae Deyshawnwww.myvirtueplace.com
I found it extremely powerful, which is why I memorized the page number so I could come back and share the quote with you all. I think it sums up beautifully why I refuse to cast judgment on those whom others would tell me I *must* judge to be a faithful Christian. As she says, if that is the definition of a Christian, then I do not wish to be one.But of course, it is not. At least not as I understand it.
