“When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.”
“The most important thing to remember is this: To be ready at any moment to give up what you are for what you might become.”
~ W. E. B. Du Bois
“The stories that we build our lives upon matter. In our individual lives, these stories lend meaning to our experiences, guiding us as we make decisions, informing us as we understand whether we are good or bad, chosen or damned, capable of change or pre-destined to more of the same. We may find ourselves susceptible at times, of course, to creating stories and belief systems that conveniently benefit us above others — stories that call us out as the chosen ones, the smart ones, the ones who know the true way. At times we create ideas about God that mimic our own desires, but luckily there are good tests for this kind of thing. As writer Anne Lamott says, ‘You know you’ve created God in your own image when God hates all the same people you do.’”
