Advent Is Coming

Frederick Buechner describes the Incarnation as "a kind of vast joke whereby the creator of the ends of the earth comes among us in diapers." He concludes, "Until we too have taken the idea of he God-man seriously enough to be scandalized by it, we have not taken it as seriously as it demans to be taken."

-quoted in God is in the Manger (Bonheoeffer on Advent), p.53, notes.
