The Saints

As for the saints who are on the earth,
They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
—Psalm 16:3

I think it’s not our shared opinions or doctrines that most deeply unite us as believers but rather mutual delight. If we come to see each other as we truly are—majestic, noble, righteous, immortal, sparks of authentic divinity in the world—then we’ll be bound together by the unshakeable power of astonished joy, a delight in each other that washes through our differences like a sunrise through a multitudinous morning landscape.

O my Lord, let it be so.

Happy-People
