by Richard Coble
“. . . For God, in Christ, as depicted in our scriptures, is not of the aristocracy. God does not choose company with the rich and the comfortable. This is the God in the margins, with those pushed to the margins; God in the streets; God with those trampled by empire; God with those cast aside to forgotten hospital corners.
This is the “grace upon grace” that Christ brings. This is how God chooses to be, when God comes into the world. When God enters our suffering. When God stands beside us and suffers with us, and suffers especially with those who most suffer in our world.”
