Quote of the Week: Cornelius Plantinga Jr., 2

“Our sense of God runs in us like a stream, even though we divert it toward other objects. We human beings want God even when we think that what we really want is a green valley, or a good time from our past, or a loved one.”

—Cornelius Plantinga Jr., Engaging God’s World (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2002), 6-7.

    Perhaps, too, it is God whom C.S. Lewis yearned for in grieving the death of his beloved wife, Joy, when he penned: “For that is what we should all like. The happy past restored. And that, just that, is what I cry out for, with mad, midnight endearments and entreaties spoken into the empty air.” —from “A Grief Observed”

      I like the line “The happy past restored.” So true.
