Quote of the Day (Barbara Brown Taylor, on a ‘Life of Repentance and Return’)

“Those of us who have committed ourselves to a life of repentance and return will not give up on ourselves, no matter how many times we have to repeat the process. We will keep telling the truth and turning around, every day if need be. We will never say never (I’ll never recover, I’ll never get it, I’ll never learn). Why? Because we believe in God’s goodness more than we believe in our own badness.”— Barbara Brown Taylor, God in Pain: Teaching Sermons on Suffering (1998)
