On faith, hope, and the celebration of messiness

"The arc of history is long but it bends towards justice."
Martin Luther King. Jr.

".....The opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, and emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns. Faith also means reaching deeply within for the sense one was born with, the sense to go for a walk."
Anne Lamott

"We ought to dance with rapture that we might be alive - and part of the living, incarnate cosmos."
D.H. Lawrence
