    The Joy of Being Wrong
     
      [John 9, the story of the healing of the man born blind] bears clear witness to John having understood as one of the first fruits of the resurrection the making available of the understanding that we are all wrong (blind), and that this does not matter. Being wrong can be forgiven: it is insisting on being right that confirms our being bound in original murderous sin.
    - James Alison in The Joy of Being Wrong: Original Sin Through Easter Eyes (p.125).

    Pete's generous use of my Wish List has got me into this exceptional conversation today, once again, with Alison, a most original, liberating thinker. Impossible to summarise, but essential to recommend - especially at this time of year.
