Consider this quote by Kate Kennington Steer from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“God is precisely omnipotent because God allows the God-self to open itself to the dangers of intimacy: the intimate experience of being wounded by a lack of love, of the converse experience of being absolutely willing to be wounded for the sake of love itself, wherever and whenever love might occur. Lastly, God is willing to be wounded with those who are also willing to be wounded for the sake of loving others.”

Parent God, I am thankful for your immense strength to be vulnerable, to be open to love.
