Thursday Quote Day: Christian Wiman

For this week’s “Thursday Quote Day” here is a quote from poet Christian Wiman:

“I am a Christian because of that moment on the cross when Jesus, drinking the very dregs of human bitterness, cries out, ‘My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?’ … He felt human destitution to its absolute degree; the point is that God is with us, not beyond us, in suffering.”  (Christian Wiman)
