Love

How I would like to engrave this great idea
on each one’s heart:
Christianity is not a collection of truths to be believed,
of laws to be obeyed,
of prohibitions.
That makes it very distasteful.
Christianity is a person,
one who loved us so much,
one who calls for our love.
Christianity is Christ.
NOVEMBER 6, 1977

That quote also struck me particularly when I first looked at that e-book. There are a lot of other gems in there, too.
