I was pretty low and overwhelmed earlier in the week, floundering on how to move forward… So I had taken a step back, surrendered to the uncomfortable place and also opened myself up in a different way to the divine that I know is in, with and through me (and all of creation). It was in this place of receptivity that I began to read Finding Home, only to find my eyes filling with tears…I sense what you have introduced me to is what I have been looking for.
These stories speak to my experience of [holding space for] homeless men and women. So it is my intention to take your process of creating listening circles, modified by my own experience [working with this population], and informed by my training as a spiritual director and pastoral listener, and offer a prototype 6 week program.
Thank you for all the inspiration you have given me and for encouraging me to step out into this grace-filled space.
