I got this line from the interesting film, Machine Gun Preacher"
when Sam Childers
expresses this sad reflection, overcome with the cruel injustice he's witnessing in the Sudan.
I immediately wrote it down in my journal when I heard it because I've said this when confronted with incredibly bad news or when going through a crisis.
In the context of suffering words like "God is in control!
" make absolutely no sense. Anything happens!
Realizations such as this help us move into a deeper spirituality that embraces Mystery.
