Editor’s Note: Contributor Christine Moughamian is blogging each day of Lent about her progress becoming “one brave Christian.” Follow her experiment on Twitter @1bravechristian.
When my “brave Christian” scripture doesn’t inspire me, I turn to church marquees.
They never disappoint me.
The one I photographed this morning read:
“GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE SENT US JESUS,” on one side.
And then on the other side, it said:
“LOVE SO AMAZING. SO DIVINE.”
I couldn’t help but think about the similarity between the incarnation of Jesus and that of Lord Krishna.
The Hindu scriptures say that eons ago, Brahman, God the Absolute, out
of love for humanity, became incarnate as Krishna, the simple cowherd who played his flute and sang songs of love.
Indeed, “love so amazing, so divine!”
