"Because, you know, I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. And you should never, ever regret fighting for that. You know, scripture tells us, let us not grow weary of doing good, for in good season we shall reap. My friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary and lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do."

No, it is gathering our tools and hammering away as well, as best we know how, to hopefully meet in a graced space on a bridge we build together."
"As a cosmic sentry, when you become a lightning rod for divine compassion you draw down the energy and send it around the planet."
"You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me."
"Sometimes being busy allows me to feel important and engaged, while ignoring the small inner voice of the Spirit. Busyness tempts me to react rather than respond. It allows me to do something, but not necessarily to do the right thing, or courageous thing, or the well-discerned thing."
"What to do when the house is broken and there seems no way to mend? Can we stand together and make a home for all?"
