The Generosity of Writing

From the dedication page of Brian D. McLaren’s a Generous Or+hodoxy:

To all the people who have given, lent, or recommended good books to me — books that have enriched my life.

To all who wrote those books….

To God, who is the source of every good idea (old or new), which writers accidentally discover or unintentionally steal or by grace glimpse and then wrestle into fresh words for strangers, who in turn pass them on to others — in a wonderful process of receiving and giving that’s a lot like Christmas.

Oh the sweet simplicity, beauty and generosity of T/truth that captivates each of us in ways known and unknown, seen and hidden, named and ignored.
