Divine Spaciousness

Salvation is a word for the divine spaciousness that comes to human beings in all the tight places where their lives are at risk, regardless of how they got there or whether they know God's name. Sometimes it comes as an extended human hand and sometimes it comes as a bolt out of the blue, but either way it opens a door in what looked like for all the world like a wall.  This is the way of life, and God alone knows how it works.
