Word Became Flesh, Flesh Became Words

“The word became flesh, said St. John, and the Church has turned the flesh back into words:  words of good advice, words of comfort, words of wisdom and encouragement, yes, but what changes the world is flesh, words with skin on them, words that hug you and cry with you and play with you and love you and rebuke you and build houses with you and teach your children in school.”

~ N.T. Wright, “The New Creation,” in The Crown and the Fire
