Imagine this, even (and maybe especially) if you have a long way to go.
“[God] wants [man] . . . to be so free . . . that he can rejoice in his own talents as frankly and gratefully as in his neighbor’s talents -- or in a sunrise, an elephant, or a waterfall. He wants each man, in the long run, to be able to recognize all creatures (even himself) as glorious and excellent things.” C. S. Lewis
“If the Son make you free, you will be really free.” John 8:36
