Episode Quotes

I think being an institution, a thriving, purposeful, happy contended institution would be easy if it weren't for Jesus Christ…here along comes Jesus and says you whitewashed tombs or says to us: "Hey, I'm glad all of you are here and having a wonderful time loving up on each other. But where are the others? I didn't die for the church. I want the world."
– Will Willimon
Episode 1
I think we can choose to rejoice. I think we can choose the action of rejoicing. We can find something good, meaningful, truthful.
– Angela Gorrell
Episode 2
We’re always getting ahead of ourselves, right? Just about tomorrow or lamenting what I did yesterday. Ouch. Why did I say that? And as opposed to staying anchored in the present moment. I think that’s where the joy is.”
– Father Boyle
