“We’re All In the Same Boat, and We’re All Seasick Together”
“I know I’m not you. I know I’m different from you, with struggles and fears and forms of selfishness that are unique to me. But beneath all that’s different, we’re all pretty much alike. As the pithy and influential Christian apologist of the early twentieth century G.K. Chesterton put it, we’re all in the same boat, and we’re all seasick together. We throw up different stuff because we’ve eaten different junk, but the stuff in us is bad junk. And we’re all throwing up in the way we relate.”

Question for Reflection:
What could we all see in ourselves if we looked deeply and honestly enough?
What might we see that would transform grace into a surprise that would amaze us all? (Taken from page 72)
