"There is a mystery at work here, and if we are not careful, we will miss it. If we will grasp hold of the truth that this road we are walking on is a broken place, a detour on the way to where our real lives begin, we might begin to see one another differently. God has wrapped some of his most amazing people in unusual packages, and I urge you not to miss one of them. Some of us are fat or thin; some tall or short; some physically, mentally, or emotionally handicapped; but we are all challenged in one way or another. And we are a family, a community. As long as we are on this path, it is our joy and strength to hold on to one another, pray for each other, and sing our hearts out whether we are in tune or not!"
