Here is my radio interview that aired this morning on KOMO radio with Jon Repp. Here’s to working for peace in the new year, using all the tools at our disposal. Apparently my tool box includes prayer, my camera, personal presence, and last but not least, ANIMAL NOISES. Here is the interview. Click the > play button.
As you envision the New Year, reflect on these 4 quotes I share from my 2014 Calendar. They are part autobiography, and hope as I go forward. And it wouldn’t be complete without some photos.
“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness.” 1 John 1:5
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Rumi
“Judging others makes us blind, whereas love is illuminating. By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” Wendell Berry
