Meet people where they actually are and you meet people who are in some kind of pain, people wrestling with demons, people living, more or less, with the tragic, with “the utterly unresolved in human experience” (Rowan Williams). We may deny it or suppress it, but this is the human condition. And as Eugene Peterson observes, “Those who don’t know they are in trouble are in the worst trouble.”…, I actually think that most so-called Winter Christians know this deep-down joy (they know how to dance as well as mourn), and that their greatest temptation is not despair but elitism and smugness.
