no one can stop us now

[Firefly] on Incarnation, atonement theology, etc.

So, we watched more of Firefly at Micah House tonight, and in watching "Safe" I was really struck by the resonance of one exchange (text c&p'ed from script here), thinking about God reaching out to us.
RIVER: You gave up everything you had to find me. And you found me broken. (beat) It's hard for you. You gave up everything you had.
SIMON: Mei mei ["little sister"]... Everything I have is right here.
