Parker Palmer said: “We float in a whole ocean of grace. Sometimes we start flailing because we forget that the ocean is buoyant and will hold us up just as the salt water is capable of doing.”
Remember those days when you were learning to swim? Or even to float? (It was a big deal for me to get that far!!). Once I relaxed, I was held up as if I were surrounded by gentleness.
I believe that God is absolutely delighted that you have chosen to spend time with God in this Epiphany Retreat.
