Gifted



“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” 

—Howard Thurman

    1. e, my husband says that from what he can see, this blogging world, with all our differences and different perspectives, and our willingness to give space for them, even when we don't agree, is the world as it should be. i like that.

  6. What a wonderful quote! My father was co-pastor for a year at an inter-racial church in San Francisco while they waited for Rev. Thurman to finish his commitment elsewhere so that he could come and take that place.
