- How do I typically respond to moments of yearning? Try to get past them? Feel embarrassed by them? Embrace them? Often, I simply bury them beneath busyness or appease my heart with little indulgences like food, hobbies, or pleasures.
- Is the life I am living the life God envisioned for me? Am I free or living out the script that life has handed to me?
- Best definition of a kiss EVER (from the ‘modern’ perspective): ‘A kiss is two mandibles pressing together for a certain duration of time, with the possible exchange of digestive fluids.’
- “We live in narrative” (Eugene Peterson).
- Is it possible that the life of God is less interesting than the stories God inspires?
- My own small story is often about making life work for me on my terms, and doing just enough to not make God angry or disappointed with me.
- What if God was like our deepest dreams and greatest imaginations–and yet better and truer?
- There is nothing more hopeful than knowing the redemptive presence of God in the midst of tragedy.
- Joy and pain are not paradoxical, rather inseparable–joy is found in the midst of pain.
- Must God act outside our doctrine (ie our theological framework of security) at times to actually relate to us and grow us?
