Read something great this Friday: Karen Eileen Sikola's “It Came to Pass After This,” new nonfiction at Pure Slush. I heart both Sikola and Slush. Check it out, and happy FridayReads!
from “It Came to Pass After This”:
I could have asked for any number of things, had my faith not wavered years ago, if I still saw prayer as a means for anything. For patience, or understanding. For stability, or strength. Instead, I said, “I don’t, but thank you.” Confrontation makes me uneasy, even from a face like hers, with eyes that served to punctuate her good intention.
