Quote for a Sunday: What breaks us apart

"At least for a moment we all saw, I think, that the danger of pluralism is that it becomes factionalism, and that if factions grind their separate axes too vociferously, something mutual, precious, and human is in danger of being drowned out and lost.” ~~ Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

Wow, Mama Squirrel. Just WOW. This quote is so very culturally relevant at this very moment, and I am writing it into my commonplace book right now.

Ha - it's all the more perfect knowing that it is connected with Alan Jacobs. I have his latest book and look forward to diving in to it once I finish some others.

Thanks for sending me to the link. I just signed up for the newsletter.
