Thought for the Day

. . . people talk . . . about their families because that is
how we talk about God. That is how we talk about 
the meaning of our lives. . . .

. . . We don't live our lives in our heads, in theology
and theories. We live our lives in our families: the families
we are born into, the families we create, the families we make
through the people we choose as friends.
~ Kerry Egan, Hospice Chaplain*
