No Ifs & Buts

To declare something unequivocally, to leave no wiggle room for excuses and half-hearted rationalization, we might say “No ifs, ands, or buts about it.” At least, that’s how the phrase goes in the United States. In the UK and Australia, the more common expression is “No ifs and buts.” And I really like this way of saying it.

Because for me, when I’m talking about the fullness of the absolute, about commitment and truth and passion and power, I think it’s all about the ANDS! No ifs. No buts. But lots of ands — and this, and this, and this, and you, and them, and him & her & me. It’s about additional inclusivity, an ever-expanding, unabashed, unconditional YES to Life.

I can’t wait to see you Saturday at 6:00 pm. Come early for snacks, wine, and community at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
