Forty years ago, I learned that God’s arms were open wide to me, and I was glad. This morning, I learn that God’s arms are open wide to me, and I am undone.
"[T]hey . . . spread his arms and nail them to the cross . . .
And love is firmly fastened onto loss. . . .
[H]ere we see the length, the breadth, the height. . . .
We see what love can bear and be and do. . . .
[His] arms are open wide.” Malcolm Guite
“[W]hat is the breadth and length and depth and height. . . .” Ephesians 3:18
