To ZOOM or not to zoom
Now we say “I am zoomed out”. I attend more meetings and events now that I no longer get in my car to zoom from one meeting to the next. I just push a few buttons on my computer.
Two ZOOMS one after the other were helpful to me as I work with others to advocate for changes in the criminal justice system.
Where does your passion for justice lead you?
There are so many worthwhile initiatives.
After my second ZOOM, I stayed on to talk with my coworker. What do we need to do? Where should we go from here? Then my friend shared a poem from Martha Postlethwaite, which I share here:
Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose
in the dense forest
of your life
And wait there
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself to this world
so worthy of rescue.
To what are we being called? Let’s wait.
The Holy Spirit will come.
