Isaiah 6:1-8; Luke 5:1-11

Conocimiento begins in pain, in a major life change, in some breaking point—in some situation of rupture that forces us to look deeply into our own identities and reevaluate how we are in relationship with one another and with ourselves.

We lay down the parts of our life that are stagnant, that turn us against ourselves. For Anzaldúa, conocimiento, deep knowing that builds community, begins in the willingness to leave and unfolds into the readiness to follow a new path guided by a vision of a better world.”
