“Avoid the bad habit of domesticating the prophet of your choice, turning him into a cheerleader for your way of thinking and way of life.  Remember that all the great prophets were courageous and outrageous folks who railed against the powers-that-be, challenged self-satisfied piosity, threatened the prevailing social order, and would find you falling short in some significant ways.” — Parker J. Palmer

  1. Hello Genie (and the lovely Bob).
    I’m playing catch up here … trying to catch up with posts I’ve missed over the last couple of days (I need two Cobs … one to blog, the other to do all the other stuff. lol.

    I love this post – for many things and in many ways. It speaks of what was, but it also speaks of the here and now. It’s really a great, ever-lasting, any time, quote. Fabulous. ~ Sending love ~ Cobs. x

    1. Thanks Cobs! I know about needing another me to keep up with stuff. I can’t believe how busy we are since we “retired.” Between the stuff we have to do to take care of ourselves and pay the bills and the things we want to do there are days I’m exhausted.
