Do We Matter in Particular?


Divine-Wedgie“A God who has an account for “every hair on your head” will not leave the beneficiaries of His grace to something as abstract as a universal, since the universal unfolds itself in the particulars of our existence. “

In this edition of The Divine Wedgie, Dr Matthew Tan reflects on our tendency to sometimes think that God is concerned for us in a ‘universal’ sense, rather than a particular one.
