“I hereby arm myself for today with coffee and the willingness to be wrong.”

~ Audrey Assad

If we could approach each morning with such humility, imagine the ways that God could work within us, especially, if with our coffee is God’s Scripture.

Let us pray that each day in a willingness to be wrong, we experience just how right things can be.

“The child intuitively comprehends that although these stories are unreal, they are not untrue …”

― Bruno Bettelheim,

Please read to your children.  And Children, read to your parents.  Husbands, read to your wives; and wives, read to your husbands. 

Pick up and read.  There is much to learn.

“Fear of torment is the way of a slave, desire of reward in the heavenly kingdom is the way of a hireling, but God’s way is that of a son, through love.”

~ Saint Nicodemos of the Holy Mountain
