This memorable line from the hit television show Grey’s Anatomy, wasn’t original as I remember my mother asking me the same thing when I was a child –– fifty years ago. It’s always stuck with me though as a commodious metaphor for why we continue to hold on to old beliefs long after we left the original nest where we learned them in the first place.
Holding on to false beliefs is a costly business, especially when we’re unaware that we are the one who is carrying around those old, worn-out presumptions that affect our lives on every level: our health, our relationships and our very well-being.
Please join me as I invite us to take a good, hard, deeply curious look at our beliefs around illness, pain, love, society, politics, racism, money, and a whole lot more.
“This is how humans are,” opines Orson Scott Card, “we question all our beliefs, except for the ones we really believe, and those we never think to question.”
Those are the precise beliefs we’re going to thoroughly disembowel on
Sunday, August 14th 9:00am.
And, maybe, just maybe, for good this time.
