The Question
From Braver/Wiser
I need to celebrate our human family, whose power and potential shimmer against the backdrop of deep time, because we aren’t at our best right now.
A Candle (Unscented) of Concern
From Braver/Wiser
May I have the wisdom to be curious when I find myself grumbling about “them.”
The Golden "No"
From Braver/Wiser
I feel disoriented when I’m in a new situation and I can’t figure out whether the rules are real or imaginary.
Ground Control
From Braver/Wiser
The most faithful, life-giving coping strategy—for me—is to attune to a voice calmer and wiser than mine.
The Smallest Biggest Number
From Braver/Wiser
If two is the smallest number in ethics, it's also the smallest seed of certainty; the way not to get lost.
Love What You Love
From Braver/Wiser
We can be cheerleaders for joy, and compassionate about the fact that we’re all just trying to survive.
Making Room at the Table
From Braver/Wiser
When it comes to living our expansive, inclusive, anti-oppression faith, we fall short.
This Is What We Do Here
From Braver/Wiser
A matter-of-fact gesture—a child taking my hand in worship, though I was a stranger—claimed me as part of something larger.
