heartbeats ...

"Show me a dreamer and I’ll show you one of God’s heartbeats for the human race."
(Joan Chittister)

Where would we be without those who hope and dream. who care enough to put a vision for humanity before their own success, who give themselves to dreaming the dreams of God for this world. Where would we be without those who dare to believe that despite their frailty and weakness, despite their mistakes and failures, God is still big enough to use the ones who dare to dream for Him.

To dream of the possibility of goodness, wholeness and beauty is the most courageous thing one can do in the face of the evil, brokenness and ugliness of our world.

show me a dreamer and I'll show you one of God's heartbeats for the human race!
