Hello, folks! Thanks for being here. I woke up and realized I wasn’t likely to go back to sleep, so what better way to start my Saturday than with a cup of coffee. a snuggly puppy on the couch next to me, and a little writing? It’s been a busy week at work and in my personal life, so a little bit of quiet and calm is most welcome.
A couple weeks ago, I finished reading the book Bring It Home: The Adventure of Finding Yourself After Being Lost in Religion by Matt Kendziera. The title sounded a bit heavy to me at first, but I quickly realized that this author shares out of his own experience of religion and faith in a funny way, which is not always easy to do. His journey is relatable, especially if you’re someone who grew up in the evangelical church. He also has a podcast called Chasing Goodness, which is actually how I found this book in the first place – it’s on Spotify, if you’re interested.
Anyway, as I said, I finished reading this book a couple weeks ago… but I keep coming back to different quotes from it that I find irresistible. The one I want to share today has given me some legs to stand on this past week and I am grateful. It was a reminder to act with intentionality and love, and to recognize that my smallness has effects on the world and humanity in a unique way, as does all the intricacies of yours. So, I hope you are encouraged by his words below and we all keep heading towards true life together. With hope until next time ~ Sonja K.
