We cannot change the world by a new plan,
project, or idea. We cannot even change
other people by our convictions, stories,
advice and proposals, but we can offer a
space where people are encouraged to
disarm themselves, lay aside their
occupations and preoccupations and listen
with attention and care to the voices
speaking in their own center.
- Henri Nouwen
Peace and blessings on this chilly Friday night.
