Frederick Buechner quote

IN THE BOOK OF Genesis the first word God speaks to a human being is you (Genesis 2:15), and in the book of Revelation, the last word a human being speaks in effect to God is "Come, Lord Jesus!" which is to say "Come, you!" (Revelation 22:20).
It is possible that the whole miracle of Creation is to bridge the immeasurable distance between Creator and Creature with that one small word, and every time human beings use it to bridge the immeasurable distances between one another, something of that miracle happens again.
