The Quotidian, October 23, 2010 ~ Glimpsing the World as it Might Be

“… once you have glimpsed the world as it might be, as it ought to be, as it’s going to be (however that vision appears to you), it is impossible to live compliant and complacent anymore in the world as it is.” ~ The Reverend Victoria Safford

The Reverend Victoria Safford is the minister of the White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church in Mahtomudi, MN. She is also the author of Walking Toward Morning: Meditations (2003).
