This week has been tiring, trying, strange, vulnerable, confrontational, and empowering. I entered it apprehensive of its academic challenges and intellectual perplexity, yet I found that it offered a much greater lesson: How does one become Liberated from the complexity of themselves? Well, through the intensity of these days I have learned the answer comes only from by vulnerability, the compassion of GOD'S love and the empathy discovered once one has been broken thoroughly and died to self. That is Liberty!!
