Learning to love Barth

“But His attitude and action is always that He seeks and creates fellowship between Himself and us. For large stretches it may be for us doubtful, dark and incomprehensible. For large stretches it will seem to us like the very opposite of this relationship. It will reveal itself as such through judgement and grace, through dying and making alive, through veling and unveiling. It will always be the light that shines out of darkness when it is revealed to us as such…”

-Karl Barth
