Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. --Frederick BuechnerBuechner is the author of many good books, including that small but mighty and beautiful novel, Godric, told in the voice of Godric of Finchale (c. 1065 – 21 May 1170).
Frederick Buechner will turn 90 tomorrow. Happy birthday to him! He has lived long; may he live longer, long enough to see concord and compassion elevated over divisiveness and scorn in this country.
