at the annunciation

To be a Christian is to live into the questions,

to push the horizon of self back so insistently that one’s reference point is the ever-present act of birthing,

to live in the presence of what can never be finished, found, or known,

to live in God’s time, utterly open to what is.

–Wendy M Wright in Seasons of a Family’s Life: Cultivating the Contemplative Spirit at Home
