Wendell Berry on the Love of God

“I take literally the statement in the Gospel of John that God loves the world. I believe that the world was created and approved by love, that is subsists, coheres, and endures by love, and that insofar as it is redeemable, it can be redeemed only by love. I believe that divine love, incarnate and indwelling in the world, summons the world always towards wholeness, which ultimately is reconciliation and atonement with God.”–Wendell Berry, “Health as Membership”
