“The incarnation is a kind of vast joke whereby the Creator of the ends of the earth comes among us in diapers… Until we too have taken the idea of the God-man seriously enough to be scandalized by it, we have not taken it as seriously as it demands to be taken.” – Frederick Buechner
See also this Mockingbird post from a few years ago. Extended thoughts on the Incarnation from Buechner. Came upon it while looking for the source of this first quote. So good.
“The Word became flesh. Ultimate Mystery born with a skull you could crush one-handed. Incarnation. It is not tame.”
