Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

the broken heart

The best way to grow empathy for those who are lost
is to know what it means to be lost yourself
                             Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World

Love and service
compassion and healing
are not born out of
strength and skill

the counselor who makes a difference
the pastor who touches the heart
the friend to whom you turn

is the one
like you
has a broken heart

from which the love of God
has flowed
