"Whoever connects me with the hidden springs of all life, whoever increases the sense of life in me...is my leader."
Mary Parker Follett
"It seems to me, Lord, that we search
much too desperately for answers
when a good question holds as much grace..."
Lord, be a bright flame before me,
be a guiding star above me,
be a smooth path below me,
be a kindly shepherd behind me,
today and for evermore. Amen
