Sacred Imperfection

Sacred Imperfection

Sep 4, 2018-- "It occurred to me that my whole life, particularly as a minister, there's been a lot of pressure to be a certain way my whole life. I've been trying to get it right and finally be perfect enough to be a really good minister. And what I've discovered in the last couple of years as I've grown more and meditated more deeply -- also through a lot of the values that I've practiced because of ServiceSpace -- that a lot of the secret of my success is failure. Which is odd. It's a paradox. And actually getting it wrong is as good as getting it right in many ways. Perhaps that theme would be relevant to someone here that might feel like they struggle sometimes with their inadequacy in some way or feel like they're not enough or that life is not showing up the way that they want. If all goes according to plan, I want to share that there is actually a perfection in every appearance of imperfection." Reverend Bonnie Rose shares more in this piece. (6667 reads)
