"God, when the Pharisees told you to quiet the disciples, you said “no.” No to silencing their voice. No to diminishing their truth. No to squelching what needs room to breathe. What a gift that “no” was, for now I trust that I too am free to cry out. I am free to bring you my joy, my grief, my pain, and my hosannas. Thank you for a love like that. Amen.
