2013-A Year of Great Books! Here's what we've read and where we're heading in reading....
"Always I marvel at you, you blessed ones,--at your demeanor, the way you bear transient jewels with eternal ease."--Rainer Maria Rilke
Prayer for Today: With all our breath, with all our energy, with the light that is within us may we turn to You O God for guidance, for courage to make change, for willingness to "play big" as, and only as, You would have us do. For the blessings You have bestowed thanks. May we be a blessing to others. May it be so.
"In the end, the sight of goodness undeterred has more power than all the forces on earth arrayed against it."-fromWelcome to the Wisdom of the Worldby Joan Chittister (Eerdmans)
"All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small"--Lao-Tsu
"...there is a new creation; everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!"--2 Corinthians 5:17
"All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning."--Albert Camus
"What are you looking for?" -John 1:38
"Whoever can see through all fear will always be safe." --Tao Te Ching
"God won't be lived like some light morning. Whoever climbs down the shaft must give up earth's repleteness for the craft of mining: stand hunched and pry him loose in tunnels."--Rainer Maria Rilke
