God, the Intruder

“God is an intruder. He encroaches, presumes, invades, and infringes. He crashes the party. Tears aside the curtain. Throws open locked doors. Hits the light switch in a dark room. God pulls the fire alarm in stuffy, sacrosanct hallways…” Joni Eareckson Tada, The Glorious Intruder (for more on this theme, see Introduction)
