Barbara Brown Taylor explains why she’d be a bad choice for jury service


It is not that the facts don’t mat­ter. It is just that they don’t mat­ter as much as the stor­ies do, and stor­ies can be true whether they hap­pen or not.

From “Home By Another Way,” in Home By Another Way by Barbara Brown Taylor (Cowley, 1999).
