What Does It Mean To Be A People of Invitation?

 

Do not try to save the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing
in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life falls
into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself to this world
so worthy of rescue.

— “Clearing” by Martha Postlewaite

 

A real conversation always contains an invitation.
You are inviting another person to reveal [their true self] to you,
to tell you who they are or what they want.

— David Whyte

 

Is there enough silence, stillness, and space in your life to hear “the invitation”?

Are you living your “calling”? Most religions speak of God or Life – something beyond ourselves – inviting us to some unique mission or cause.

If it is true that each of us has a unique calling, what’s yours? Have you found it?  Or are you too distracted to notice the invitation?

How are you handling Life’s invitation to live gracefully, and even gratefully, with uncertainty and change?
