Holy Imagination


“Like the Hebrew alphabet, the alphabet of grace has no vowels, and in that sense [God’s] words to us are always veiled, subtle, cryptic, so that it is left to us to delve their meaning, to fill in the vowels for ourselves by means of all the faith and imagination we can muster.”

Frederick Buechner, The Sacred Journey

  1. I have been holed up in an studio for much of the past five weeks, editing videos for corporate America. Sweet Jesus, what I wouldn’t do for some grace in the midst of corporate jargon where multi-syllabic words are piled on top of the other like discarded trash. Corporate jargon, too, is veiled and cryptic, but could not be more opposite from grace in its meaning. This quote slapped me out of my corporate stupor. Thank you.
