'...how should we think of ourselves? Well, the one word that comes to mind is that we are disordered. I think this word captures the human condition. However...I do not want the word to be used to focus in on certain experiences to the exclusion of our own disorder. In other words when we speak of being disordered, it should be noted that we share with one another this essential quality; we do not focus on the disorder of the other while overlooking our own disorder before a holy God.'
