Reverend Julie Brock
Finding Our Center/ Listening for Life

"[There are] moments when it is clear--if I have eyes to see—that the life I am living is not the same as the life that wants to live in me… Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent." - Parker Palmer
