Quote- full Friday #1

(I wrote a post and then deleted it, realising that everything that we (I?) say has been said before, and most likely in a far more articulate fashion. So every Friday, I will post a quote that captures my attention. Have you found any wonderful quotes this week?)

God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew, or a Muslim, or a Hindu, or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honor my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t think my tradition defines God, I think it only points me to God.” –John Shelby Spong
