Interim #SundaySentence: The Rev. Dr. William Barber

It's not yet Sunday Sentence time, but I came across this today in the Rev. Dr. William Barber's The Third Reconstruction (January 2016, Beacon Press) had had to share:

"We'll be back shortly. We've got to go and hope somebody."

Bringing hope, not help as he once thought she meant, Rev. Barber writes of his grandmother's saying when going out the door with food for others. He notes, she knew faith and works come as one. Something to remember on this day to honor Dr. King.

Sunday Sentence: 'Undermajordomo Minor'

As inspired by Fobbit author David Abrams at The Quivering Pen, the best sentence(s) I read this week, presented without further comment or context:

There is an instance of import when one experiences the conception of love, he realized. It was though you had been waiting for it all along; as if you'd known it was approaching, and so when it arrives you reach out to greet it with an innate familiarity.

-- Patrick deWitt, Undermajordomo Minor
