When God wants an important thing done in this world or a wrong righted, He goes about it in a very singular way. He doesn't release thunderbolts or stir up earthquakes. God simply has a tiny baby born, perhaps of a very humble home, perhaps of a very humble mother. And God puts the idea or purpose into the mother's heart. And she puts it in the baby's mind, and then-God waits. The great events of this world are not battles and elections and earthquakes and thunderbolts. The great events are babies, for each child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged with humanity but is still expecting good-will to become incarnate in each human life.

  1. I love that quote; I think I first read it in this essay by Marian Wright Edelman:

  2. This quote matches this baby's face so beautifully. I'm thinking this is one of your photographs. Looking into this baby's eyes is like looking into the eyes of a very wise old man. Stunning!
