Woeful Dog-Paddling

Last summer, during the height of the first Covid wave and the run-up to the election, I met a guy in his thirties—clearly intelligent and well-educated and curious about life—who confessed that he had no idea what to believe anymore.  No idea? I said.  Really?

None, he said sorrowfully.

Though he fully admitted he was getting most of his information from the Internet, which clearly had a lot to do

Quotes by Paula Huston  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“PRACTICE Today, wear your oldest and least presentable clothes, no matter what's on the schedule. Notice how people react. Think about what it is like to move about in a consumerist society when you cannot afford to keep up appearances. Pray for awareness regarding your own sense of self-worth when you are not “looking your best.” Ask to be freed up from this unnecessary self-preoccupation. Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them. (Lk 12:27)”
Paula Huston, Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit

“Wednesday: Pray for Strangers You See throughout This Day One of the elders said: Just as a bee, wherever she goes, makes honey, so a monk, wherever he goes, if he goes to do the will of God, can always produce the spiritual sweetness of good works.5”
Paula Huston, Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit

“Instead of humbly following along behind Jesus, I've let myself get sidetracked by a myriad of temptations: overly ambitious creative projects, delusions about my own importance, worrisome relationships, secret small addictions, stubborn resentments, and a hundred forms of self-indulgence.”
Paula Huston, Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit
