Just walked the @wakediv labyrinth. :)
did the rose
ever open its heart
and give to this world all of its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being,
otherwise we all remain too
Classic literature re-imagined for smartphone era. :) #nerdalert
People must not only hear about the kingdom of God, but must see it in actual operation on a small scale perhaps and in imperfect form, but a real demonstration nevertheless.
Winston-Salem friends - see the note below from a group of community members who are seeking to see compassion all around our city. I invite you to join me and others in taking part in this initiative! See the note below from Jerry McLeese from Interfaith Winston-Salem —
“In Winston-Salem, we see individual and corporate acts of compassion daily. It’s who we are. And, for the volunteers who comprise Interfaith Winston-Salem, it’s the brand – the identity – that we want everyone to associate with our city.
That’s why Interfaith Winston-Salem is mounting an effort to have Compassionate Action Network International declare us a City of Compassion. You can join the effort by signing the Charter for Compassion at http://charterforcompassion.org/ .
Send a note to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add your name to people named below who subscribe to the Charter for Compassion.”
I’ve done 4 of these… lots of traveling to be done! Humbled and thankful that I’ve been able to travel throughout my life!
- Got lost in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul
- Viewed sunset at Santorini, Greece
- Wandered Christmas Markets in Germany (no hot wine, though)
- Waded in the Dead Sea in Israel (didn’t get to float, though)
