    Like Corinne, I appreciated the Buchner quote a lot. It’s humbling and freeing to recognize how much we all read our own experience onto Jesus. I hope that this is something I can begin to admit more clearly as I offer up interpretations of Jesus, and recognize that I – along with any other individual or group – cannot hold a monopoly on the person of Jesus. Through that, I hope I can better recognize the gifts that other people’s stories might offer me in my understanding of God, even people I may be initially repulsed by!
