God became one of us to tell us that not even death can prevent us from becoming the loving persons He made us to be.

It will be an ‘A’ tomorrow, next week, and for a thousand thousand years. The soprano upstairs warbles off key. The tenor next door flats his high notes. The piano across the hall is out of tune. There is discord and disharmony all around me. But that, [...]
