Need and Gift

God did not need to create the world, but the world needed to be created. The need of the world-yet-to-be was met by the gift of the perfect love of God, and the world came to be out of that love, for it is God's nature to love, for God is love. The becoming of the world is the overflow of the abundance of the love of God.

A thought for September 13, 2010,
on returning from Memphis and the celebration of Constance and her Companions,
and as a partial response to Professor Hawking
