I am currently reading A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans. I'm a little behind in just getting to it but I'm enjoying it very much. She addresses the issues surrounding women and the Bible with an elegance that I appreciate. She is honest and funny, and it makes me want to have coffee with her.
While there are many serious things that I could and will talk about from this book, I found this quote charming. During her month of Silence, Rachel visited a monastary. On the first day there she had worn heels, which were loud in the hallways (during a silent retreat) and she had accidently left her door open the first night during supper. She says this about her dreams that first night.
That night I dreamed I'd left my door opened again and that the Virgin Mary herself walked by, surrounded by a hazy white glow. In my dream she turned and smiled, and I noticed she wore a bright red pair of heels that, miracuously, didn't make a sound. (271)
