He defined me first, as parents do. Those early characterizations can become the shimmering self-image we embrace or the limited, stifling perception we rail against for a lifetime.

Amy Kannel is starting Strangers in Their Own Land: Love this so far. I think Hochschild has the sort of job I didn't know existed when I was in school/choosing my path of study, but would have loved to pursue. It's not the first time I've wished I had had a broader awareness of the types of research and writing careers a person can have...alas.

“Perhaps this is why an institution is unlikely to feel or admit to shame; it may be unable to countenance the possibility that at root it is not what it purports, even to itself, to be. (quoted by Michael Barnett in Eyewitness to a Genocide: The United Nations and Rwanda)”
Elizabeth Spellman

“We don't just need help when the water is rising, or the sickness is prolonged, or the grief is fresh--we need help all the time. Our forgetfulness came with the fall, but the privilege of reminding one another of the gospel is ours until all that is temporary passes away.”
Amanda Bible Williams, She Reads Truth: Holding Tight to Permanent in a World That's Passing Away

“Scholars note that human reasoning is limited not only by imperfect information and innate intellectual capacities but also by the broader culture that subsequently shapes the very optics that individuals use to categorize the world.”
Michael Barnett, Eyewitness to a Genocide: The United Nations and Rwanda

“I longed for a foolproof recipe of how to do faith well, and God placed me in a world where no recipe would do. He made it my job to know Him, not just know about Him. Behind the scenes of this ministry He was growing, the only viable option was to chase after Him with all my might, holding out His Word to women as I ran. Then wake up the next day and do it again. It became my job to trust. It became my job to believe. It became my job--and it still is--to marvel at the depth and breadth of His goodness, to see up close the way He has provided, and to praise Him as He continues to provide.”
Amanda Bible Williams, She Reads Truth: Holding Tight to Permanent in a World That's Passing Away

“Weber also saw that a bureaucratic world contained risks. It produced increasingly powerful and autonomous bureaucrats who could be spiritless, driven only by impersonal rules and procedures, and with little regard for the people they were expected to serve. Weber famously warned that those who allow themselves to be guided by rules will soon find that those rules have defined their identities and commitments.”
Michael Barnett, Eyewitness to a Genocide: The United Nations and Rwanda
