The 50-year anniversary of San Francisco’s “Summer of Love” is drawing near. Yeah, I know them hippies. Memories, Fragments, and Traces flood our minds as we think back to where my generation, our generation found its voice. We had passion but we were deaf to wisdom in those days.
Will we hear wisdom’s call? Will we allow ourselves to reflect on these 50 years and allow our convictions and passion to be shaped by the journey we have had? Let’s take this moment to reflect on our journey but filtered by grace.
What is that grace thing and can we self-apply? Can we let go of our failures and regrets if we are a little bummed out by the way our years have passed?
Can we apply a grateful, humble, and compassionate heart to others if we accomplished everything according to plan… you know that plan that has allowed us to be part of the privileged… you know that plan where were fortunate enough to become successful and secure?
