How to pack for an unexpected journey


Recommended Posts

The piece linked below was in our local paper. The author writes about dealing with cancer, but I thought some of what she wrote is particularly helpful for those who are leaving Christianity. Here are a couple of her thoughts I particularly liked:


Forsake the suitcase. I had a lot of plans in the summer of 2017 — things to do, places to go, people to meet. They all got swept out the door when Deep Human Problem showed up. I had a plan for life, but life didn’t want to go along. To borrow from Virginia Woolf, “Life escaped.” The thing is, life is not all that fussed about the future; it is all about the now, and when you travel with life in the now, you travel light. The only thing you need to pack is your attitude.


Here's a link to the rest: https://www.fresnobee.com/opinion/readers-opinion/article222679990.html
