A Pastor speaks the truth.


A Pastor speaks:--

“That’s the strangest thing about this life, about being in the ministry. People change the subject when they see you coming. And then sometimes those very same people come into your study and tell you the most remarkable things.  There’s a lot under the surface of life, everyone knows that. A lot of malice and dread and guilt, and so much loneliness, where you wouldn’t really expect to find it, either.”

(From the novel "Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson, published by Picador in 2004)
