This Ain't God

I remind my own people, the Church is, or at least should be, a "NO SHAME" zone. God does not become incarnate to shame us, but rather (as I recently pointed out) to lift us out of our shame.

He does through the Cross, by willingly and without reservation entering into our shame, taking it upon Himself and not turning back even at the cost of His Own Life.

In Christ,

+Fr Gregory
