Quote of the Day: Who Is Broken?

Vicar

The truth that many of us cannot truly accept is that we are all broken. Not having a bed to sleep in or car to drive does not define someone as broken. The uneasy truth that I have discovered is that some of the most broken people hide in lovely homes, nice clothes, busy schedules, important jobs, and familiar prejudices. They can deny their brokenness and keep on the disguise. What sets people on the fringes apart is that they know and fully own the truth that they are broken. They have nothing to hide behind, no lie to offer to disguise the truth, no possessions and titles to divert unwanted attention. (Shauna Hyde, The Vicar of Tent Town, p. 2)
