God is a unity … of three. True God … and true man. We say these statements so often, it’s hard sometimes to realize just how outrageous, how logically self-contradictory, they seem to be on their surface.
The wisdom of the wise is foolishness. The greatest one is the one who serves. Blessed are those who mourn. We hold a certain belief in things unseen. Paradox — or, if you wish, apparent paradox — is everywhere in our faith.
How does paradox, then, work its way out in our spiritual lives? How do our lives reflect God’s paradoxical (or, again, apparently-paradoxical) nature? How do we daily live out the paradox of God?
