What would you name as a few graces you've happened into in 2010?
I am a literalist and take assignments seriously, for the most part. So, when we were directed at the beginning of a Christmas carol sing to write down five blessings we've received in 2010, I wrote down the following in the few quiet minutes we were given (in no particular order):
1. A sense of place.
2. Belonging in community in a variety of settings.
3. Opportunity to expressing calling through writing, speaking, teaching and strategizing for community justice.
4. Insight (every now and then) and the occasional courage and wisdom to act on it.
