Thoughts - July 21, 2016

"The things of this world draw us where we need to go.”
― Mary Rose O'Reilley, The Barn at the End of the World: The Apprenticeship of a Quaker, Buddhist Shepherd.
My goodness....I'm so glad to see this. I imagine many of you have felt this "draw" and chided yourself for imagination or tried to ignore it. Or you did follow the 'siren' and then, perhaps, chose not to talk about it. There was a time, not many decades (or centuries) ago, when one was proud and even expected to "receive the call." Most folks think of this in terms of the ministry, but it often referred to other occupations and other life choices. Then there is the question of being drawn to evil (perhaps the 'siren' alluded to above). Personally, I think most of us know the difference. I can count on one hand (maybe two!) the calls and "draws" in my own life. I hope you can, too. - Beth Almond Ford
