Quote of the Day:
Our animality juxtaposed against our godliness is the central tension of our situation.
We exist at the interplay between the finite and the infinite – and meditating on that interplay is the source of all our malaise, all our anxiety…but also the source of the fire in our belly that pushes us into action and forces us, compels us to render beauty, to chase wonder, to seek out awe and to crave encounters with the divine.
