Just read this little quote in my current read and had to share after yesterday’s post about community.
If we are honest about life in human community, we must admit that the people closest to us are not only our connection points in a support system that we depend on for our very lives. They are that, for sure, but they are also mirrors who reflect the hidden shadows of our souls. ~Wisdom of Stability p. 94
I hope that there are folks in your life–some community in your day to day–that will help you see those hidden shadows. It is in those times of discovery, we are continually shaped into the men and women Christ longs for us to become. Thanks to not only my small group, but the other folks and mentors who have allowed me to look back at my reflection, see those shadows and have the courage to change.
