Steven Charleston posts weekly on FB and is a source of inspiration to me and many others. Here is today’s post.

Here is a seeker’s prayer, offered for all who are searching for the Spirit, not inside the walls of faith, but outside, in the open sky of questions, among the uncertain souls who bear the scars of conformity, in the company of mystics and dreamers, religious nomads wandering the far corners of ritual, looking for a truth worth believing, believing goodness is out there, undefined but no less sacred, beneath the moonlight, among the whispers of innocent hearts, a holy hope carried like a gift, brought to the place where God promised to meet us. May all seekers be blessed. May they discover what they seek. May they be heralds of light.

While preparing to co-facilitate a men’s weekend, I came across this quote from James Thurber. It applies to all of us regardless of gender but is particularly apt for us men.

“All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why.”
