More wisdom from Willimon

April 14, 2011

This guy is good. No wonder he’s never had an unpublished thought!

I think most of us, or maybe this is just me, but most of us spend most of our lives attempting to get our lives out of God’s hands and into our own. We achieve, and work, and build and hoard, we work out at the gym and watch our cholesterol. For most of us, if God wants my life, then God will have to damn well come out and get it.

And truth to tell, by the end, one way or another, God does. We die.

William Willimon, Thank God It’s Friday (Nashville: Abingdon, 2006), 73.

      I know! He’s a bishop, too! You might think that someone that outspoken wouldn’t be appointed a bishop. Anyway, good for the UMC!
