I wish I knew better how to balance a call to strive for perfection (wholeness and full development) with an acknowledgment that we can't be unrealistic perfectionists - a desire to maintain the highest personal standards with a love of all no matter their own current standards - a craving for reverence with an appreciation of sociality and friendly chatter - a love of deep symbolism with a desire for plainness - a sense of community with a yearning for individual expression - an appreciation of the sacred with an openness to the secular - ad infinitum.
One of the things I love most about the Church and the Gospel is that they are so complex and expansive, but that also is one of the things that causes such difficulty and heartache for many.
