Pithy, shareable, less-than-280-character statements you can share. 

  • “…One of the reasons parables are sometimes listed as difficult to understand is because they tell us stuff we actually really know deep down, but we’ve got it so repressed we don’t want to acknowledge it.” Amy-Jill Levine
  • “We all tell our stories the way we want to hear them. The Hebrews did it, the early followers of Jesus did it, the United States has done it, the world does it – it’s what we do.” Amy-Jill Levine
