“We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick.”

I was watching my Facebook stream today to see if anyone would mention the brilliant eloquence at the end of Tim Cook’s letter. But, nobody that I noticed did. I’ve been pondering on his phrase “this is my brick”. I love it. That theme of laboring away at placing bricks into a path fits so well with the “ordinary” Christian life that I’ve been thinking about lately. Being a bright, hot star that burns out in a few minutes is not the life most of us lead; putting the steady, humble effort in day after day is the real challenge. I think I’ll be pondering Cook’s last line for a long time.
