Letters of Recommendation

Tomorrow I am sending out 56 letters of recommendation for students and in the next week I will more than double that number! As I have been slowly conquering this intimidating and massive task, the following has been percolating in my mind:

You show that you are a letter from Christ... written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:3)

Hmm, some good old incarnational sacramentology. Theology doesn't get much better than this, thanks to a stack of letters of recommendation.
