“To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an
animal or cook for a stranger—these activities require no extensive
commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone willing to
bend, reach, chop, stir. Most of these tasks are so full of pleasure
that there is no need to complicate things by calling them holy. And yet
these are the same activities that change lives, sometimes all at once
and sometimes more slowly, the way dripping water changes stone. In a
world where faith is often construed as a way of thinking, bodily
practices remind the willing that faith is a way of life.”

— Barbara Brown Taylor
