Nathaniel Torrey on the Litany of Humility, which I super love although I also appreciate the fact that almost every reference I see to it includes some kind of Grizzled Local Tells Teens Not to Go in the Woods kind of warning. For me it helps me trust & rely solely on God–it reassures me that even if all my own schemes and people-pleasing strategies fail, God will love me. I think the worry is that the prayer can be misused to reinforce feelings like, “I don’t deserve love.” Fortunately I’m ideologically opposed to caring about what people deserve….
Anyway I would excerpt Torrey’s piece but I can’t figure out how to get past IRD’s fundraising thing. I’m hoping you all will have better luck.
