Words from another…

“Flannery O’Connor put it well when she said that “people don’t realize how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the Cross. It is much harder to believe than it is not to believe.”

Blessing carries with it not the promise of a trouble-free life, but the promise of God’s active presence among the people who seek to do God’s work in the world– even in the face of the worst the world can give.”

-Kimberly Long, The Worshiping Body, page 64
