What I’m Reading Now: Embracing Contradictions

Faith+Lead Connect with God Leave a Comment

“I am re-reading Between the Dark and the Daylight: Embracing the Contradictions of Life by Joan Chittister. It is a wonderful read for uncertain times.”

-Laura Newberry, stewardship chair at a small, urban ELCA church

From the Introduction: 

“There is a part of the soul that stirs at night, in the dark and soundless times of day, when our defenses are down and our daylight distractions no longer serve to protect us from ourselves. It’s then, in the still of life, when we least expect it, that questions emerge from the damp murkiness of our inner underworld…These questions do not call for the discovery of data; they call for the contemplation of possibility.”
