"Temporary shelters of identity"

"What I would like to do is rescue the notion of wrath by attempting to show how there is indeed no violence in God, but that the phenomenon which religious language has described as “wrath” is very real, and worth taking seriously."

Which is precisely what I plan to do in my Learning Church session in two weeks time; largely influenced, as I am, by Alison's wider analysis. (And this is why I think Alison is both a genius and a wonderful teacher of Christianity: "the magic and enchantment we must learn in our gay Hogwarts is only good magic if it helps us return to our own mugglehood as a contribution to the enchantment of all muggledom.")

(HT *Christopher, for reminding me of it)
