On the home page for Life In The Trinity Ministry there is a phrase that rings as so true and so important.
A place for solitary work that cannot be done alone.
There is work that is ours to do, and no one else can do it for us.
There is a need for us to have a safe place to do that work in relationship with others. A place where we can say what is true for us and be heard. A place where we can bring our questions and not get ready answers, our fears and not have them shushed away, and our messy emotions and not have someone try to clean them up. We need people who will keep us from getting burned, and, will hold our feet to the fire. People who see for us what we can’t see for ourselves, and, who accept us as we are.
While the work may be ours alone to do, there is safety in numbers. Going it together reminds us that we are not alone in our desire to make sense of things, and to become as fully ourselves as we are meant to be.
I am grateful to those who walk with me on my journey to becoming whole, and for those who invite me to walk with them.
