  • Our role in a bigger story?
    by Sue on November 20, 2018 at 10:48 am

    I wonder whose story we are part of. In our dominant western culture, we do tend to think in terms of our individual lives. What’s the story we tell ourselves and others about who we are and what we’re about. But actually, even then we are part of a bigger relational narrative. What we do … Our role in a bigger story?

  • Looking and seeing

    It’s Monday morning and unusually for me I’ve just done the weekly family shop. Wandering down the aisles people are in a daze. Going slower than the usual Saturday crowd. Is this just Monday morning shoppers? There wasn’t a big match last night – Wales played Tonga on Saturday.

To do things that are uncomfortable, that we might not feel sufficiently confident to attempt. Or requires us to relinquish control.

    Bold has two slightly different meanings depending on whether it’s applied to a person or to an object. This is really interesting because I wonder if we tend to confuse the two. An object displays boldness on the outside – having a strong, vivid or clear appearance. And conjures up the idea of being striking, … Be bold!
