Radical Grace


When you no longer expect something more from life, you are for all practical purposes an atheist. When you are no longer open to doing something new, to seeing and feeling in new ways about old things, you might as well hang it up. There always is more of the Spirit for you to receive, or you would not be sustained another moment.

The experience of the Spirit is an under-served, unmerited becoming, a new whole, greater than the sum of all the parts. It draws us out and beyond ourselves in spite of ourselves. It is radical grace.

— Richard Rohr, The Great Themes in Scripture
