Colette, thank you.

Clay,

I so agree. And I love your example of Jesus feeding the 5000: there is certainly enough to go around if we choose to see with our hearts.

As much as I’d like to take credit for the “both/and”, I can’t. You, especially, may enjoy the writer from whom I learned the idea. His name is Richard Rohr. He is a Franciscan Friar, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation and a prolific author. I read the idea of “both/and” in one of his many books, I believe it was in The Naked Now. He was making the same argument you make here. It was beautiful and something I will never forget especially because, striving for agape I need the help of God and the inspired. Rohr is inspired and inspiring. When I catch myself thinking in the “either/or” I push myself to see the “both/and” which is always there. We limit ourselves. Five loaves and two fishes can indeed be a feast. Of course there is enough for all!

Google him, if you are interested. He is worth hearing on one of his tours, if you get a chance and he is absolutely worth reading. I have received a daily email from his Center for years. I suspect you’d enjoy much of what he writes because you already seem to live it.

Keep inspiring us to see with our hearts!

Colette
