r.i.p. brennan manning

a little old man named brennan died yesterday. he wasn't much in the eyes of the world, and his passing will barely register a blip on the radar screen in the media. but those of us who came to know him through his writings know better. because we know that in the kingdom of god, the first shall be last, and the last shall be first. so even though brennan knew that he was a great sinner, he also knew that he had a great savior. because of the furious love of god that came to him in jesus christ, because of the fierce mercy and relentless tenderness that the lord showed to him, he was able to have a ruthless trust and an intimate belonging no matter what the situation or circumstance. though he was indeed a ragamuffin, because of jesus, he will always be abba's child. all is grace ...
