This is what the love of God is like

“This is what the love of God is like:
it is free and therefore it is both all-powerful and completely vulnerable.
All-powerful because it is always free to overcome,
but vulnerable because it has no way of guaranteeing worldly success.
The love of God belongs to a different order, not the order of power,
manipulation and getting on top, which is the kind of power that pre-occupies us.”  

― Rowan Williams, 
Theologian and former Archbishop of Canterbury.
