Thanks to my religion degree, my theology has been ruined.
Thanks to my studies abroad, my view of the world has been ruined.
Thanks to my experiences among the poor, my view of money has been ruined.
Thanks to the many places I have lived, my view of community has been ruined.
Thanks to where I live now, my idea of culture has been ruined.
Thanks to the people with whom I work and serve, my view of justice has been ruined.
I am forever ruined; I am forever in the process of reconstruction. And I would never have it any other way.
Today I'm feeling grateful for the people who have walked alongside me in this process of destruction, change, and growth. If you are reading this, you were probably a part of one or another processes.
Thank you for ruining my life. :)
