Episode 32: Wide Gates, Narrow Paths, and Princesses

Is it concerning or comforting to know that the people who have gone before you have screwed up just as much as you have, are, and will? Perhaps it is both. Have some funny stories from the front lines, a brief lesson in Jewish travel history, and a charming princess tale for the road as Kris expands on Jesus’ sermon on the mount, which continues in Matthew 7:13-14.

PS–Is there someone in your life who needs to hear the story of The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Muncsh? Kris highly recommends it for all little girls (and boys) to give them a model of what it looks like to walk away from an abusive relationship, situation, or choice. The link will take you to the tiny, treasured, retro version currently sitting on her bookshelf, conveniently available through Amazon.com.

  1. We choose to do things “not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”

    I’ve always liked the lines from John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s “We Choose to go to the Moon” speech:
    “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are HARD, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”
