This is God’s style

“The right brain likes to wonder more than calculate.  And it’s only with this meditative habit of being that we can earnestly enter into another’s story–even our own.

“Wonder is the attitude that people have int he presence of Jesus in the Gospels.  The Greeks called the object of this wonder téras (τερας), which means ‘something beyond all expectation.’

“If people expected something from God in first-centuray Palestine, it certainly wasn’t Jesus of Nazareth.  The Incarnation of the Son of God didn’t just surpass expectation–it shattered them.  This is God’s style.”  (Luke Burgis & Joshua Miller, Unrepeatable)
