Live the mystery.

... if we want a God we can prove, or an incarnation we can prove, aren't we making an idol, rather than falling on our knees in awe of the wonderful mystery?

It's a lot easier, a lot safer (in finite terms) to worship an idol than to expose ourselves to the fire of the eternal God -- not the flames of hell, but the flames of love. Perhaps that's why some of the best theology is found in story. (Madeleine L'Engle)
