The annual elementary school Thanksgiving feast is such prominent event from my childhood, and one I’m incredibly grateful that my own children have never experienced.
If you want a teenager to run away from church go ahead and teach them about the virgin saints. If you want teenagers to see the power they hold and the faith they can embody tell them about the the fearless arguers, the brave truth tellers, the rebel saints.
I believe in a world that is wider and deeper and bolder than the facts that I can quantify about my existence.
My daughter has outgrown her bold statements. But now I miss her brutal honesty.
