Quote of the Day

If you find that there is something that you need, come to one of the brothers and he will tell you how to get along without it.

Benedictine guest master to monastery guests. Quoted by Eugene Peterson in his book Practise Resurrection.

I just loved this quote. So true in so many cases. Reminded me of our time in Kenya.
