simple thought

Arden’s comment on “wisdom” made me think of this: Swiss (?) theologian Karl Barth (to some, one of the greatest thinkers in Europe in the last century) reportedly once replyed to a request for a summary of his theology by quoting this simple song…

“Jesus loves me,

this I know,

for the Bible tells me so…”

‘nuf said? ‘nuf said indeed.

    Grace and peace,
