The above video is a clip from Firefly featuring a dialogue between characters River Tam and Shepherd Book, a preacher.
If only more people would take River’s stance in this clip. Unfortunately, most people take the view of Reverend Book.
“It’s not about making sense. It’s about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life. It’s about faith. You don’t fix faith. It fixes you.”
Want to know how I read that? “It’s not about making sense. It’s about letting disbelief take over your better judgments, and letting your muddled judgment blindly guide your life. It’s about faith. You don’t trust your better judgment. Let faith ‘fix’ you.”
