I'm drawn to the old African Spiritual "I Wonder as I Wander"
"I wonder as i wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
For poor on'ry people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander out under the sky."
I spend much more time wandering around life than I do plowing through it. It seems to be a gentler, more open and gracious posture that leaves my hands and heart open to new perspectives and new opportunities to serve, and be served.
I hope this blog will be an open invitation to engage in conversations about what meaning we give to the experiences we have. The older I get the less sure I am of all those things I was once so certain of. I find myself enhanced by the perspectives of others. The few things about which I am convinced, give me a center from which I can interact, enjoy, learn from, even challenge daily encounters.
