1. I spoke at length yesterday with a long time advocate who will remain unmentioned. We discussed the issue of health, hope in the face of hopelessness, betrayal, blindness and balance in the face of it at. #churchtoo #abuseofaith #metoo
2. I thought I understood that this was a marathon, not a sprint. Her farsighted showed me the importance of pacing, of rest, of picking with great care the corner of this garment of sorrow I choose to sow my strength in. #churchtoo #abuseoffaith #MeToo
3. I went to bed with a heart of lead. I know I cannot keep pace with others. I’m a plodder not a runner. I know my strength is small and my is weakness great. I feel my finiteness and the fragility of my frame. I am so human. #churchtoo #abuseoffaith #MeToo
4. I still feel sober about it. This work is not a frenzy. It is a “long obedience in the same direction.” The fruit of which may be small/great. Nevertheless, I will gather myself and as many as I can and whisper words of light to the dark. #ChurchToo #metoo
5. I am considering with care where and to whom I put my time and my physical/emotional energy. Looking forensically, as it were, at my finiteness. Meaning is important to me. You, you are important to me. #churchtoo #abuseoffaith #metoo
6. All this to say that I care deeply for you. In order to be here long term to sup with you and serve you I need to care a little more deeply for me.

In love and utter solidarity,
LA
