love does not control. it opens a space of becoming.


these words from catherine keller's "on the mystery: discerning god in process"





are these words in their simple beauty resonant because while they ring true they are so difficult to live? she is speaking about g-d, but she is also speaking of us (i doubt she would set up such a binary).

how did love come to mean ownership, control?


i think that process theologians are frightening for some not because that approach implies that we have something to lose.

it implies that we do not *have* it to start with.


more on this later. i have to get back to work.
