TRANSFORMATION

“Transformation in the world happens when people are healed and start investing in other people.”  Michael W. Smith

 

“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”  Marianne Williamson

 

Who is responsible for transforming our world?  Can we leave it up to institutions?  Politicians and government?  The Church and faith-based organizations?
What would true revolution look like?  Does it have to be violent?  Or would it be our refusal to join in the angry, bitter, hateful and frightened acts of others?
What would happen if we searched for truth and chose very carefully?  How much power would we take back if we considered the news we hear;if we stopped believing every opinion, conjecture and accusation presented to us?

 

This is a good year to ponder these things.  IT is a time of choice.  We do have power and responsibility:  Don’t let anyone or any entity take that away from you.  Don’t settle; really make a decision.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
