Fears can serve as a tether, keeping you tied to your past and ultimately from achieving independence. However connections can serve as anchors, or a stabilizing force, enabling you to reach higher and more fully develop your independence, even as you are tethered¯ to others.
Paradox is a trip.
Over the past 4 years or so, I’ve come to increasingly realize that truth resides in both parts (many parts?) of any given equation. Non-denominationally speaking, Christ was trying to help us figure that out a couple of thousand years ago when He told His followers that he Read More…
