“These days I earn my living teaching school, not leading worship, and while I still dream of opening a small restaurant in Clarkesville…there is no guarantee that I will not run off with the circus before I am through. This is the life that has turned out to be mine, and the central revelation in it for me—that the call to serve God is first and last the call to be fully human.”
—Barbara Brown Taylor
