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
