Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


The Thing Itself

We are told that Christ was killed for us, that His death has washed away our sins, and that by dying he has disabled death. That's the formula, that's Christianity. That's what has to be believed.

Any theories we build up has to how Christ's death did all this are, in my view, quite secondary; mere plans or diagrams to be left alone if they don't help us, and, even if they do help us, not to be confused with the thing itself.
Ambrose of Milan (338-397)
