Weekly reflections on spirituality and health
Reflection for week of September 14
Our lives are touched by those who lived centuries ago, and we hope that our lives will mean something to people who won’t be alive until centuries from now. It’s a great “chain of being,” someone once told me, and I think our job is to do the best we can to hold up our small segment of the chain. That’s one kind of localism, I guess, and one kind of politics- doing your utmost to keep that chain connected, unbroken.
The mystery of peace is located in the nature and quality of relationships developed with those most feared.
