“I thank you for becoming weak, Lord Jesus, so I don’t have to be strong.
I thank you for being willing to be considered imperfect and strange,
so I do not have to be perfect and normal…
I thank you for being considered a failure,
so I do not have to give my life trying to pretend I’m a success.
I thank you for being wrong by the standards of religion and state,
so I do not have to be right anywhere, even in my own mind.”
That’s Richard Rohr’s email meditation for today. It is from the Center for Action and Contemplation.“I do not have to be right anywhere, even in my own mind”? I guess that’s different from “in my own brain.” Whatever, perhaps an absence seizure will provide me with a voice!
