Strachan: Everyday Life Is God’s Gift to Us

“The miracle that God intends to give most of us for most of our days is the miracle of the ordinary. Everyday life is God’s gift to us.

The ordinary existence is the one suffused with holy dynamism, for it welcomes and involves birth and death, planting and uprooting, war and peace, mourning and dancing.

The enchanted life that God would give us in Christ is not what we might have been trained to expect or desired in our hearts. The enchanted life is the life given to God, a life that embraces the full range of human experience, including the ordinary and even mundane.”

-Owen Strachan, Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind, 331.
