“‘The Word became flesh,’ wrote John,
‘and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth’ (John 1:14).
That is what the incarnation means.
It is untheological. It is unsophisticated. It is undignified.
But according to Christianity, it is the way things are….
One of the blunders religious people are particularly fond of making
is the attempt to be more spiritual than God.”
Frederick Buechner, b. 1926
