Sarah Miles Quotes

One Quote by: Sarah Miles of St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church, San Francisco Director of the Food Pantry.

All religions, at one point or another in their evolution tried to proclaim their single, inerrant consistency. All religions even the most liberal, were tempted by the reactionary impulse to freeze faith in place. Because as Jesus teaches, it’s easy to be threatened by the reality of the complicated, messy, syncretic, God-bearing truth that becomes incarnate among us and makes things new. We’d rather have a dead religion than a living God
