More than a few years ago I attended a workshop held by Peggy Way. At the end of one session, she quoted “We Are Simply Asked” by Jim Strathdee. This quote has remained me with all these years later and serves as a kind of mission statement.
We are simply asked
to make gentle our bruised world
to tame its savageness
to be compassionate of all
including one’s self
then, with the time left over
to repeat the ancient tale
and go the way of God’s foolish ones.
