Wonder: an online Circle of Trust®

Yesterday I was gathering the materials for Sunday’s Circle of Trust® focusing on wonder. It was pretty easy to be filled with wonder, I’ll tell you, so many lovely things to stir mystery and appreciation: the bluest sky streaked with gentle clouds, trees with halos of pale green leaves, the air soft and sweet, and birdsong drifting through it all.

Searching for thoughts and ideas to inspire reflection on wonder, I came across this from Justine Huxley.

What would happen to our relationships, our experience of difference and conflict, to our faith, or our approach to social action –- if we consciously applied mystery to all things? ~Justine Huxley
It stopped me in my reverie.


How to find that sense of wonder when things are not so glorious, or when we feel conflicted?

Does that resonate with you?
