Even at 5:30 this morning, this stunning piece had me combing through it over and over. Beautiful musings from Barbara Brown Taylor's Mixed Blessings, with regard to the question from John the Baptist about whether Jesus was the Messiah (or if another was coming):
"'People who were blind to the love loose in the world have received their sight; people who were paralyzed with fear are limber with hope; people who were deaf from want of good news are singing hymns. And best and most miraculous of all, tell John that this is not the work of one lonely Messiah but the work of God, carried out by all who believe, and there is no end in sight. Tell him I am the one, if you must, but tell him also that yes he should look for another, and another, and another. Tell him to search every face for the face of God and not to get tripped up on me, because what is happening here is bigger than any of us. What is coming to pass is as big as the Kingdom of God.'"
