Can honesty be a place of proving yourself? Can you value honesty so much to the extent that you demonstrate a more transparent image of your life than you live it? Can transparency be an idol that serves to prove that you are not a liar/hypocrite/like the other hypocrites? If honesty can be a pedestal, then trying to be more transparent in how you live is not for the sake of clarity, but so that you distance yourself from those you hold in judgment.
I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
