Don’t worry that what you do in the name of justice might not make a difference. Walk with the conviction that if you offer your life and your heart to journey you will never be the same.” — Becca Stevens
While traveling on our Lenten journey we ask, “How would you like to make a difference with your life?” Start small and start today. Focus on the experience not the outcome. Having trouble getting started. Here are a few imagines I came across:
- Imagine a world where people choose their work according to the good it will do for the poorest of the poor – because they saw it in us.
- Imagine a world … where spiritual reflection rather than political expedience, became everything we do as a nation – because they saw it in us.
- Imagine a world where the care of the earth became a living, breathing, determining goal in every family, every company, every life we touch – because they saw it in us.
- Imagine a world where humble listening to the other became more important than controlling them – because people saw it in us.
- Imagine a world where what makes for peace becomes the foundation of every personal, corporate and national decision – because they were called to it by us.
The small step you take today “might not make a difference,” but “you will never be the same.”
You, you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will be as one. – John Lennon
