Choosing

by Norman P. Grubb

Bill has now written that too much weight is put on choice, whereas in reality we hardly choose, we just ARE – a driven people, though of course we can temporarily deviate. He has written me so well on this about us basically not “choosing” but just “being”, where our primary choice first fixed us, and even that was hardly a choice but just going where I couldn’t help going when I had seen my need and saw the reality of Christ’s love. I was caught and yet in the “mystery” of the law of opposites the paradox of my friend Kierkegaard, there does remain that amount of choice as in the final word of Revelation...“Whosoever will”. Never beyond the dialectic, which as Kierk says puts passion into life!!
