Coffee Conversation:

We know that if we could totally comprehend God, then God would have to be no larger than our own minds, and so not large at all. We know that the very fact that there is a God requires that there should be elements we cannot reconcile; yet the moment we meet such elements, we are driven to wonder whether there can be a God after all.
