You're never going to feel bad about your whole life if you loved people and you were curious. I mean, that's kind of all I want!”

Barbara Brown Taylor
“Religions are treasure chests of stories, songs, rituals, and ways of life that have been handed down for millennia - not covered in dust but evolving all the way- so that each new generation has something to choose from when it is time to ask the big questions in life. Where did we come from? Why do bad things happen to good people? Who is my neighbor? Where do we go from here? No one should have to start from scratch with questions like these. Overhearing the answers of the world's great religions can help anyone improve his or her own answers. Without a religion, these questions often do not get asked.”
barbara brown taylor, Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others

“Why I Cannot Relate

"What do you think of this piece?" Someone will ask
About some work or form of expression in time
What does it mean? They want
Me
To tell them my thoughts
But sometimes
My thoughts run so deep I cannot tell them
So instead I want to say
i DoNt KnOw
Because that is the only thing that makes sense to them
I cannot relate sometimes
Frustration of society
So I seclude myself
But I actually would like to find that one person
Who would like to know those thoughts I cannot express
That person will take the time
To relate
Truly understand
So that way when I say
i DoNt KnOw
They will actually realize
That I know much more.”
Kylee Carrier

“Imagine standing in a room in a large museum. As you look around the dimly lit gallery, you begin to recognize shapes: a basket, an arrow, a beautifully decorated carving, a shield. Some of the objects are unrecognizable to you. What if these objects could speak? What would they tell you about themselves? How have they been used? Where did they come from? How did they get to this museum? Whom do they belong to?”
Ari Berk & Carolyn Dunn

Padgett Powell
“ If you could trade out and be, say, Godzilla, wouldn't you jump on it, dear? Couldn't you then forgo your bad haircuts and dour wardrobe and moping ways and begin to have some fun, as Godzilla?

Padgett Powell, The Interrogative Mood

“​The ​currency to purchase the token of truth begins with ​proper phrasing of the query.

It is the ill-considered question that too often
​​creates the false illusion of a binary objective reality wherein two sides can claim equal validity.”
Brian Goedken

Aimee Herman
“And then I remember Aunt Wenda saying, “Well, isn’t this just like life. Feels like it’s all together, but there is always, always something missing. Something amiss.”

Richie Norton
“Questions open a space in your mind that allow better answers to breathe.”
Richie Norton

“What is Strange and disconcerting about Jesus is the fact that he rarely makes demands. The style of teaching he engages in is not rote on memorization or indoctrination but Socratic, propositional and inductive. The listener is invited to explore and come to a conclusion. It is the desire of Christ for his audience to reach a conclusion and not be told what to think.
Stories, sayings, reversals, parables and other forms of teaching used by Jesus are not good teaching tools for people who seek simplistic answers. Jesus teaches but requires more of a listener. We are invited to join the journey, wrestle with our assumptions, confront our spiritual bigotry and struggle with the humbling mystery and profound profundity of God.
This is HARD faith, especially for the modern reader. We want the speaker to tell us what to think. We want our stories tidy, without complication, and we do not want questions designed to coerce us beyond easy answers. This is the LIFE and MINISTRY of Jesus. He was a walking mobile university, a theological gadfly, a spiritual teacher and Savior who cannot be contained by tradition, conformity or assimilation. Jesus is loose in the world quietly upending all assumptions, ideas and concepts we hold true.”
Otis Moss II
