Atone

Reading The Gift and came across this little note about atonement...

to reunite...
to make 'at one'...


What does it mean, then, that you atoned with blood? That you became 'at one' with us in this way? It was, I guess, the final taking on of our life here. You took on not only our beginning but our end. You became alpha-omega in the spectrum of our existence.

And we became 'at one.'

I am not the type to quickly buy a book on a whim... but I just did, thank you for posting this.
