Let your life speak

This is the powerful title of a beautiful little book by Parker J Palmer, beloved by many friends.

David Marlow reminded me of a quote from it yesterday:

“Some journeys are direct, and some are circuitous; some are heroic, and some are fearful and muddled. But every journey, honestly undertaken, stands a chance of taking us toward the place where our deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.” 

+ Parker J. Palmer, from ‘Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation’, Jossey-Bass, 2000

And I suspect I am not the only one who needs to hear this…

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
