Limitations

photo by Tima Miroshnichenko

“The limitations that are part of us being ‘not-God’ were intended to keep us close and in relationship with God. Our very limitations imply the need for relationship. To be a creature is to refuse to make ourselves but instead to joyfully accept our limitations. It is to know that our self-making would be our un-making.”

Julie Canlis, A Theology of the Ordinary, pg. 15
