Free From Perfectionism

7 Feb

The Church has an unhealthy addiction to perfection: the kind that makes no allowances for messes. This standard can only be met by restricting or rejecting the use of the gifts of the Spirit… Messes are necessary for increase… There’s a big difference between graveyards and nurseries. One has perfect order, and the other has life.
