BE GRATEFUL FOR ORDINARY WORRIES

 
It has been a sobering few days. First the word from a former student and long-time friend that her twin sister, who has traveled abroad with us, had a sudden onset of mental illness last winter and had committed suicide a few days prior.
Then a visit a couple of days ago to another former student who was bitten by a mosquito last year and developed West Nile disease, leaving her totally paralyzed Read more of this blog post »

“Pull a thread in my story and feel the tremor half a world and two millenia away.”
Daniel Taylor, Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories

“If you have been in the vicinity of the sacred - ever brushed against the holy - you retain it more in your bones than in your head; and if you haven’t, no description of the experience will ever be satisfactory.”
Daniel Taylor, In Search of Sacred Places

“We are shaped by stories from the first moments of life, and even before. Stories tell us who we are, why we are here, and what will become of us. Whenever humans try to make sense of their experience, they create a story, and we use those stories to answer all the big questions of life. The stories come from everywhere--from family, church, school, and the culture at large. They so surround and inhabit us that we often don't recognize that they are stories at all, breathing them in and out as a fish breathes water.”
Daniel Taylor
