Encouragement for the Journey – 18/09/11

Greetings fellow traveller,

Once more, this community of faith, celebrates, another Annual General Meeting. I thought for a moment that would be my focus for this week’s Encouragement for the Journey.

Then it happened, at the Floral Afternoon, my eyes were opened, there was wonder, beauty and creativity, expressed through the floral displays and musical items. What a gift we have been given. So I thought I would offer you a number of quotes for your encouragement and reflection:

“Did you know that secret? The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.”
Brian Aldiss

“Where there is great love there are always miracles.”
Willa Cather

“Just a tender sense of my own inner process, that holds something of my connection with the divine.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Albert Einstein

“It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God”
Mary Daly

“You are an incarnation of uniqueness.”
Alf

“Jump.”
Joseph Campbell

Meanwhile Peace

Alf
