May I Suggest

“If you’ve been sitting quietly, year after year, hoping that someone will finally start speaking a language that makes sense to you, may I suggest that you are that person?

If you’ve been longing to hear a new language for faith, one that rises and falls like a song, may I suggest that you start singing?

If you want your community to be marked by radical honesty, by risky, terrifying ultimately redemptive truth-telling, you must start by telling your truth first.”
