Steven Charleston: ‘Fragile Bodies and Anxious Minds’

Steven Charleston, citizen of Choctaw Nation and retired Episcopal bishop.

“I have seen it before, the loving presence that is watching over you, and so I have no fear, for I know from the experience of so many others that you will be safe from harm. In this world of fragile bodies and anxious minds we may feel vulnerable or weak, but the strength that surrounds us knows no limits. What is made of clay will come and go, what we think is forever will soon be forgotten, all drifting away on the winds of change, but one constant thing will remain: the core of a human life, the soul and all it has seen and done, held like a precious jewel, held in the hand of God, brought to the place of quiet seas and still mountains, the place where peace finds its name.”–Steven Charleston
