Just now she said, "Sister Kate, Sister Miriam, Sister Daddy, Sister Mommy!"
I think she's onto an insight about what a title like "Sister" can signify, but I'll wait till she's older to ask about it.
Do you remember when Sister Act came out in the early 1990's? I loved that movie. It was the movie that made me love Whoopi Goldberg. It was amazing to see a film about "my people" told from the perspective of such a quirky religious outsider.
In what ways does donning a religious habit, living the religious life, and taking the title of "Sister" change me? In what ways does my wearing of the habit, living of the life, and using the title of "Sister" change what others think of religious life?
