a world worth the effort

Contrary to naïve positivism, the world is not so good (and God so easily offended) that we should suppress our questions and pain.

Contrary to cynical negativity, the world is not so bad (and God so easily blamed) that we should deepen our resentment and despair.

Between these extremes, the world is so interesting (and God so deeply committed to it) that we should apply our effort and compassion.
