Wisdom Circle – 6/7/2021

I am not technology.
I am made from mud and stardust and the hot breath of God.
I am not smooth or clean, I scratch and break and there is dirt under my rough fingernails.
I am not machine – I am creature.
I dance and weep and sweat and I love with my awkward body.
I am not perfect.
I make people cry and I fail and I fall again and again.
I am human.
A messy, heaving, broken, coarse, yet somehow glorious, human.

Gideon Heugh – “Tearfund”
