"Our task, our tension, our balancing act, is to live in the world and not be worldly. To participate in culture - the ways humans organize, the things they make, the possibilities they imagine - without succumbing to the worldly pride and greed that permeates these organizations, things and possibilities. We must be earthly without being worldly." - Nathan Bierma
Sometimes I don't even think I'm earthly. I feel very disconnected from the world - caught up in my Christian bubble world ... and submerged in my own family life. I do hope that this next season of life brings me to a place where I can better connect myself to this world in which we live.
