“Leaning, Tilting, and Falling Forward”

Rev. Axel Gehrmann & W.A. Karen Brown

In an ideal world, the scales of justice are perfectly balanced and unmoving. Alas, our world today is not ideal. The law of inertia maintains a status quo with a different kind of immobility. As religious progressives, we long to build a better world. This means moving beyond our familiar comfort zone, leaning into the unknown, tilting toward our dreams. Progress may involve moments when we feel strangely unbalanced, as we strive toward a world of greater love and justice.
