Thought for today

“… God did not simply call us into being, but continually has expectations of us.”

“…our task is to repair and perfect God’s creation.”

Susannah Heschel

I'm still chewing on the second bit of the thought ... I like the sentiment, and we DO have a responsibility towards Creation, but it seems to put a bit of the emphasis on us and is a bit works-centric.

I would like to read more of where this came from to get a bit of context.

Good point Rev Boy. I wish I knew which of her writings this quote came from, but it was passed on by a friend so I don't know. She has a Jewish background which might explain a slightly different perspective on the works-centric side of things.
