In some areas of our lives, we are the ones calling the shots, while in others, there’s an authority outside ourselves that requires our obedience.  How do we know when to obey authority and when to subvert it?  How do lofty goals such as justice and faithfulness related to our passionate feelings in the moment?

daily asterisk

Even in a country you know by heart
its hard to go the same way twice
the life of the going changes.
The chances change and make a new way.
Any tree or stone or bird
can be the bud of a new direction. The
natural correction is to make intent
of accident. To get back before dark
is the art of going.

Wendell Berry
“Traveling at Home” from Traveling at Home
