Sometimes good intentions bring unintended consequences, and without killing a sacred cow, Mike Bell and Rick Henderson use famed, canonized Mother Theresa as an example of what that looks like - she wasn't perfect, and we need to be careful not to put people on a pedestal, and make sure our acts of compassion help without hurting. 

Dallas Willard, a pastor and spiritual formation teacher, is behind the latest quote of the week, "Reality is what you bump into when you are wrong." Mike and Rick say this quote is what Sacred Skeptics is all about -- just because you don't like the truth doesn't make reality any less real or truthful. Why can't more people admit when they're wrong -- like libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and his unfortunate Aleppo fail.
