Even the Right Path can Lead through Darkness

Even the Right Path can Lead through Darkness

“Surely it is not a naïve faith that says everything is going to be as we would like. It says: no matter what happens, no matter how long the trek through the valley of the shadow of death, I will have the one thing I cannot live without. That is, union with the Great Spirit. And as long as that abiding, that connection remains, I won’t only survive, I will be well in my depths.”

Letting Story Shape You

“We need to listen to certain stories again and again, whether those from our religious traditions, from our cultural traditions (oral traditions or folk tales), or even from the corpus of Shakespeare or Toni Morrison or Star Wars, if preferred. We need to pick a tradition we admire, and then let it work through us. Story is somehow essential, somehow part of the warp and weft of the universe, part of our God-nature.”
