"What's the last meal you've eaten?"
"McDonald's." - Wendell Berry
This is balm to my soul. Last semester I was really struggling with living within the tension of striving for ideals and always failing, and how to "live well," how to understand our imperfection and not be burdened with guilty about it, but an awareness that in a sense we do need to try and live better... but as a response to God's grace and love, not out of a feeling of obligation and oppression.
