::jesus and monkeys::

"if i've learned anything over the past five years it's that doubt is the mechanism by which faith evolves. it helps us cast off false fundamentals so that we can recover what has been lost or embrace what is new. it is a refining fire, a hot flame that keeps our faith alive and moving and bubbling about, where certainty would only freeze it on the spot."
-Rachel Held Evans :: Monkey Town

just finished reading Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans. her journey is unbelievably close to mine. so many of her words hit home and speak volumes to me. i highly recommend this book to anyone on a journey of faith and discovery. to read more of rachel's work stop by her blog.
